Sondheim and 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 realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.
Sunday in the Park with George is produced on Broadway by Ambassador Theatre Group, Jeanine Tesori, Riva Marker, in association with New York City Center (Arlene Shuler, President & CEO, Mark Litvin, Managing Director), and Adam Speers - Executive Producer for ATG.
New York City Center (Arlene Shuler, President & CEO) has played a defining role in the cultural life of the city since 1943. This production of Sunday in the Park with George joins previous City Center transfers to Broadway including Chicago, celebrating its twentieth year, and the Tony Award-winning revival of Gypsy starring Patti LuPone. For nearly 25 years, City Center's Tony-honored Encores! series has been "an essential New York institution" (The New York Times). In 2013, City Center launched the Encores! Off-Center series, which features seminal Off-Broadway musicals filtered through the lens of today's innovative artists. Dance has also been integral to City Center's mission from the start and programs like the annual Fall for Dance Festival remain central to the theater's identity. Home to Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Manhattan Theatre Club, and a roster of renowned national and international companies, New York City Center was Manhattan's first performing arts center, founded with the mission of making the best in music, theater, and dance accessible to all audiences. That mission continues today through City Center's robust education and community engagement programs, which bring the performing arts to over 9,000 New York City students each year. www.NYCityCenter.org
Hudson Theatre, which played its last Broadway performance on April 20, 1968, has been undergoing a multi-million dollar project, restoring the landmark venue to its former glory as a Broadway playhouse. The venue is receiving significant front-of-house improvements to better serve its patrons, including all new state-of-the-art seating, Ambassador Lounge premium lounge service, and increased and improved ladies' washrooms. In addition, significant backstage and technical upgrades, including new and expanded dressing rooms, and new fly systems will transform the Hudson into a leading legitimate Broadway theater.
Situated just off Times Square in New York on 44th Street, between Millennium Broadway Hotel and The Premier Hotel, The Hudson Theatre opened on October 19, 1903 with a production of Cousin Kate starring Ethel Barrymore. Built by Henry B. Harris, a famous Broadway producer of that period, The Hudson Theatre is one of New York City's oldest Broadway showplaces. The 100-foot long lobby was the largest ever seen on Broadway at that time. Among the stars that have graced the Hudson's stage are Ethel Barrymore, Douglas Fairbanks, William Holden, Helen Hayes, Edward G. Robinson and Dorothy Gish. Barbara Stanwyck and Judith Anderson both made their debuts on its stage. On September 27, 1956 the first nationwide broadcast of "TheTonight Show" starring Steve Allen originated from The Hudson Theatre. It was granted landmark status for both its internal and external features in 1987.
Hudson Theatre is presented by Ambassador Theatre Group in association with Millennium Hotels and Resorts.
