BWW Review: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE Opens Huntington Theatre Company SeasonBWW Review: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE Opens Huntington Theatre Company Season
by Nancy Grossman - Sep 16, 2016

SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE opens the Huntington Theatre Company's 2016-2017 season.

Jenni Barber is a delight as Dot/Marie, but Adam Chanler-Berat does not match her intensity as George. The production looks great, sounds good, but feels less filling than a Sondheim show should.
