On the Mainstage
Sunday in the Park with George
Oct. 27 – Nov. 5, 2017
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Director: James Peck
Musical Director: Ed Bara
Sondheim’s longing, luminous musical celebrates creative genius – and the exquisite, excrutiating process of trying to make art.
Two artists, a century apart, strive to realize their artistic vision and create something new — without losing hold of the people they love. In the first act, 19th-century painter Georges Seurat works feverishly to complete his now-famous painting, even as Dot, his model and mistress, struggles for his attention. In the second, a 20th century sculptor (and Georges and Dot’s great-grandson) unveils a spectacular new work, but he’s dissatisfied; he yearns to move forward but feels disconnected and adrift.
Winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize, Sunday in the Park with George is perhaps the most intimate and personal work of Sondheim's career.
