BWW Review: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at Cotuit Center For The ArtsBWW Review: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at Cotuit Center For The Arts
by Heather Roberts - Jul 17, 2017

Sunday in the Park with George is a musical about the "art of making art" and two artists' journeys of filling in a blank canvas. It tells the story of George, a fictionalized version of the real George Seurat, and the creation of his famous painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," and his great-grandson, who is also named George, and his struggle to create something meaningful and new. With a book by James Lapine and music by Stephen Sondheim, it is a musical experience one will not forget. The original Broadway Production opened in1984 at the Booth Theater, and went on to win two Tony Awards, eight Drama Desk Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1985. It's appropriate, then, to produce this show in a space that is surrounded by art. (more...)

by Karen Bovard - Jun 28, 2017

Design. Pattern. Composition. Balance. Light. Dark. Harmony.

All these principles are present in the musical SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE. The current production in Minneapolis is a delight, visually scintillating, gorgeously sung and orchestrated, and successful at melding the two disparate acts into a satisfying whole. (more...)
