Sunday in the Park with George - 2016 - New York

Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Academy Award nominee 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 (Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford), not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years. Funds raised at the concert performances will allow City Center to make the performing arts accessible to the widest possible audience by subsidizing affordable tickets throughout the year.
