Que Seurat, Seurat

Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park with George won a Pulitzer Prize and 10 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical. Brainchild James Lapine wrote the book.

Seurat’s masterpiece A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte lays the groundwork for Sondheim’s musical, Sunday in the Park with George. Seurat’s new painting style and the simplicity of a Parisian Sunday afternoon magnified its popularity.

Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park with George “merges the past and present into beautiful and poignant truths about life, love, and the creation of art.”
