Sunday in the Park with George


Apr 9 – May 3, 2015

Written by Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine

Directed by Jerome Davis

Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s masterpiece about the painter Georges Seurat and his obsessive quest to create the painting that would define his life, his city, and his time.  The second act then moves forward in time to look at George’s great grandson and his own fight to make art in a world where beauty often takes a backseat to commerce.  This remarkable work remains one of only three American musicals ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama.  Includes the timeless Sondheim classics Finishing the Hat, Putting it Together, Children and Art and Move On.
