More Theater Information


Meet Alex, a photographer on a holiday with his family in the south of France. Meet Abe, a music producer with a baby on the way. Two men–both fathers, husbands, and sons–take us on a journey you will never forget.

The finest actors of their generation, Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Sunday In The Park With George) and Tony Award® nominee Tom Sturridge (1984), had audiences roaring to their feet at the sold-out engagement at The Public Theater. Now Sea Wall/A Life—from the writers of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Constellations, and the director of A Doll’s House—comes to Broadway.


A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"The powerful writing is excellent in this emotional production. Tom Sturridge and Jake Gyllenhaal are commanding."


Marilyn Stasio

"Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the finest actors of his generation. Tom Sturridge gives an overwhelmingly great performance."
