Following their sold-out run Off-Broadway, actors, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge, are heading to Broadway.
The two actors announced Thursday that they are remounting Sea Wall/A Life — two solo monologues about fatherhood, loss and resilience. The limited run begins July 26 with performances scheduled to run through September 29 at the Hudson Theater. Opening night has been slated for August 8.
Carrie Cracknell is directing from a Simon Stephens and Nick Payne penned the screenplay.
“The longstanding artistic relationships we share and beautiful material from Nick and Simon make this production an especially meaningful collaborative journey,” said Gyllenhaal. “Carrie Cracknell has crafted a true theatrical event from two distinct monologues, which, together, shine a light on the universal experience and heart-filled exploration of the beauty of life and meaning of love. Tom and I are incredibly proud to bring this story to Broadway, and to be returning to the beautiful and historic Hudson Theatre.”
Tickets go on sale for the general public on May 6.
