Suddenly Jake Gyllenhaal!
Jake Gyllenhaal’s only 34 year old and he’s already an Oscar nominated actor, so it seems as though he’s changed his passions from the screen to the stage!
That’s because after making his Broadway debut in Constellations opposite Ruth Wilson back in January, Jake is taking his talents back to New York to star in Little Shop of Horrors.
The cult favorite is being produced by Encores! Off-Center and will be the actor’s first time starring in a musical, so we’re really anxious to see how it plays out!
Jake will be starring as Seymour, the shop owner who’s tasked with feeding a carnivorous alien plant, so it’s safe to say that he’ll be shaping his role around the normalcy of the character.
Little Shop will play for three performances over July 1 and 2 off-Broadway, and will also star SNL‘s Taran Killam and Ellen Greene, whom originated the role of Audrey I on stage and in the film adaptation!
That sounds like a pretty impressive cast to us!
Will U be in the audience to see Jake try his hand at musical theater??
