You have to understand that I've been a fan of Jake Gyllenhaal's since seeing the film Donnie Darko 18 years ago.
He has appeared on stage in London before but that was back in my non-theatre going days. Hard to believe but they did exist.
I've waited a long time for him to return now that I'm a theatre-goer again. And he is back, in Sunday in the Park With George.
A musical. A musical. I hate musicals. You can read why here, although since writing that post I've realised that I also don't like songs as a form of narrative. I find it difficult to engage with them.
Musicals get under my skin in an irritating way.
Had to leave
I lasted 20 minutes into Hugh Jackman's The Greatest Showman before I had to leave the cinema.
Three songs for Rocketman.
See I do try.
Would I be able to overcome my dislike of musicals for Jake?
