Sunday in the Park with George

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by James Lapine

In Paris, 1884, George Seurat strives to transform the way we see. While he sketches in a park, preoccupied with composition, balance, light and harmony, his subjects are busy wrestling with life in a changing world - in particular, his muse and mistress, Dot. A century on, another visual artist - also named George - faces a similar dilemma as he attempts to forge a new direction amidst the pressure of high-end commissions and the merciless glare of New York critics. Inspired by Seurat's Impressionist painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Sunday in the Park with George is a masterpiece in its own right. Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine bring the past into the present tense, with poignant and painful truths about life, love, the creation of art and the struggle to be seen. This acclaimed Pulitzer Prize, Olivier and Tony Award winning musical from Sondheim repertory company, Watch This, follows a sell-out season of A Little Night Music in 2018.
