About Sunday in the Park with George
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Jake Gyllenhaal) in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Consumed by his need to ‘finish the hat,’ Seurat alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his lover Dot (Annaleigh Ashford), not realising that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.
The History of Sunday in the Park with George
Before its London debut, Sunday in the Park with George originated at the New York City Centre, where it became one of the fastest selling musicals on Broadway. Dazzling audiences and praised by critics, the release of this heartfelt show was the theatrical event of the year.
