Sunday In The Park With George


Sunday In The Park With George


Book by  James Lapine
Music and Lyrics by  Stephen Sondheim


Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG
Original Broadway Version

One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.

The days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte', Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat's artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat's descendant - named George and also an artist - finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.

An ensemble of strong singing actors performs this challenging and heartbreaking work about our need to connect to the past, present and future. The show features two coveted starring roles made famous by the Broadway performances of Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters. The groundbreaking book and score by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the authors of INTO THE WOODS and PASSION, contain some of their most beautiful and stirring work.

The show may be staged simply as in its original workshop production or with the grandeur of Seurat’s masterpiece.
