A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat

Inspired by the iconic Seurat pointillist painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim’s poetic masterpiece is a meditation on the art of making art. This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic features one of the most ravishing, moving and endlessly inventive musical scores ever written as it depicts the struggles and sacrifices of George, a fictionalized version of Seurat, immersing himself deeply in painting his magnum opus, and his great-grandson (also named George), a conflicted and cynical contemporary artist who finds the answer to his future in the past. Our new production of this revolutionary, rapturous musical brings back the core creative team behind last season’s sensational Frida and caps off our 30th anniversary season dedicated to the artists behind the art.

This production of ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ was licensed by Music Theatre International.
