Tom Sturridge and Jake Gyllenhaal, who will soon return to Broadway in Sea Wall / A Life, want to hear from fans who saw the show Off-Broadway at The Public Theater earlier this year. The two actors will share select recorded reactions on the Broadway show's Instagram; see their message below.
As previously reported, Sea Wall / A Life will begin performances at the Hudson Theatre on Broadway July 26 ahead of an August 8 opening. The back-to-back monologue plays, directed by Carrie Cracknell, explore the joys and pain of both love and loss as the men recall past events involving those they love.
Simon Stephens' Sea Wall finds Sturridge, in his third collaboration with the Tony- and Olivier Award–winning playwright (Heisenberg, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) in an exploration of the human need to know the unknowable. Gyllenhaal continues his collaboration with Olivier Award–nominated playwright Nick Payne (Constellations, If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet) for A Life, an emotional examination of how sons become fathers and the transformative power of love.
Sea Wall / A Life ran at The Public February 1–March 31. The limited Broadway engagement is scheduled to run through September 29.
