Sunday in the Park with George

The Broadway Musical Inspired by a Masterpiece!

“Work is what you do for others… Art is what you do for yourself.”

Winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for drama, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE is an enchanting show with a complex, beautiful, haunting score reflecting Georges Seurat’s imagined journey as he creates his most famous painting: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Then, in classic Sondheim/James Lapine style, it presents a second act centered around a modern-day descendant, also a George, an artist blocked and wrestling with the pursuit of his creative spark in today’s commercial world.

Cast members are named based on their role in the famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat

Act I premiered Off-Broadway in 1983 starring Bernadette Peters & Mandy Patinkin and on Broadway with both acts in 1984. It also won the Drama Desk & NY Drama Critic’s Circle Awards, was nominated for 11 Tony© Awards, & won for scenic & lighting design. Revived on Broadway in 2008 & 2017.

“Bit by bit, putting it together…”
