Music and Lyrics by Stephen SondheimBook by James LapineInspired by George Seurats magnificent painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapines soaring musical is itself an artistic masterpiece. The musical begins with the story of George and his model and lover Dot. As George struggles to find his artistic voice, he becomes more and more distant from the one woman who truly sees him for who he really is. Meanwhile, the characters that inhabit Georges painting have lives unto themselves, which George captures with his paintbrush. A century later, George and Dots descendants, themselves struggling artists, grapple with the same issues of artistic ingenuity, and a public who just doesnt understand. Through melodic and heartbreaking music, poetic lyrics, and quick, jaunty wit, Sunday in the Park with George reveals universal truths about the nature of art, love, and passion, with the breadth and depth of arts most enduring masterpieces.
