The Story

Sondheim's Tony award winning masterpiece is one of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, Sunday in the Park with George is the moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat. It 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 ground- breaking work by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the authors of INTO THE WOODS and PASSION, contain some of their most beautiful and stirring work.

Performances Dates:

Three Weeks Only: FEBRUARY 19th - MARCH 8th, 2015, in the Lohman Theatre
