Annaleigh Ashford to star as Dot in Sunday in the Park with George alongside Jake Gyllenhaal

Annaleigh Ashford will star as Dot in New York City Center's production of Sunday in the Park with George.

Ashford joins Jake Gyllenhaal as the title role in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's musical. The show is being staged for three benefit performances between 24th and 26th October 2016.

Ashford's Broadway credits include: Sylvia, You Can't Take It With You, Kinky Boots, Wicked, Hair, and Legally Blonde. She is a series regular on Showtime's Masters of Sex and recently filmed Fox's remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Hollywood actor Gyllenhaal has previously appeared in If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet on Broadway and This Is Our Youth in the West End.

The special event will honor business leader and philanthropist Adrienne Arsht. Funds raised will go toward subsidizing affordable tickets throughout the year to programs such as Fall for Dance and Encores! Off-Center.
