Sunday in the Park with George Information

About the Show:

Sunday in the Park with George is a musical with music and lyrics by the eminent Stephen Sondheim and a book by his frequent collaborator James Lapine. It was inspired by Georges Seurat's iconic painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," and what little is known of the artist's life. The dual role of Georges Seurat and his great-grandson George was memorably created by Mandy Patinkin (Evita, The Secret Garden, The Princess Bride), and the dual role of Georges' Mistress Dot and her daughter, Marie, was created by the beloved Bernadette Peters (Into the Woods, Song and Dance, Annie Get Your Gun).

Sunday in the Park with George opened on Broadway in 1984 and received several Tony Award nominations as well as the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, though critics' reviews were mixed. A London production followed in 1990, and the show has since been revived in both cities. London's Menier Chocolate Factory revived it in 2005, and the production transferred to Broadway's Studio 54 in 2008, where it was extended multiple times thanks to huge demand. Audiences still appreciate Sondheim's and Lapine's vision in this poignant peek into the life of an artist. Get your Sunday in the Park with George tickets to see what is regarded as one of Sondheim's most complex and intriguing works.

Plot Synopsis:

In 1884, artist Georges Seurat is out sketching for his now-famous painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." Dot, his mistress, models for him despite her frustration with the heat while a nearby old lady and her nurse talk about the new tower to be built in Paris for the International Exposition. The scene changes to an art gallery where Jules, a more successful artist and Georges' friend, joins his wife Yvonne in criticizing Georges' first painting as lifeless. Later, in his studio, Georges decides that he must continue painting instead of taking Dot to the Follies, angering and distancing her.

In another session at the park, Georges sketches a surly boatman when Dot enters on the arm of Louis, the baker. Jules and Yvonne pass by, criticizing the novel nature of Georges' painting and protesting a measure to have his work included in a group show. At the end of the day, the park empties and Georges laments that his art has driven Dot away. Back in his studio, she tells him that she is pregnant and leaving for America with Louis. The next day, Georges reminisces with his mother while the others in the park begin quarrelling until chaos erupts. On his mother's urging, Georges takes control of the subjects of his painting and they sing in harmony in the finished product.

The second act opens with the subjects of the painting reflecting on their immortality in art and mourning Georges' sudden death at 31. The scene shifts forward one hundred years to 1984, where George, the great-grandson of Dot and Georges and also an artist, is unveiling his latest artwork, a laser machine called Chromolume #7, an artistic reflection on his grandfather's famous painting. His elderly grandmother (Georges' and Dot's daughter), Marie, helps with the presentation. George comments on the difficulty of creating modern art while Marie ruminates on her legacy and art's enduring nature.

Weeks later, after Marie's death, George is invited to present his work on the island from the painting. Once there, he reads a book his grandmother left him, once owned by Dot and containing notes she made of Georges' mutterings during his artistic process. A vision of Dot appears and tells George to ignore his critics as he reads "White. A blank page or canvas. His favorite. So many...possibilities."
