Sunday in the Park with George

SF Playhouse

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by James Lapine; Directed by Bill English. In the final days before the completion of his masterpiece, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat is torn between making meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot.


This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman had to say about Sunday in the Park with George :

In this 1985 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the French post-Impressionist Georges Seurat, working on his idyllic, pointillist masterpiece, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” is torn between his art and his lover, Dot. SF Playhouse artistic director Bill English helms a 15-member cast. The story spans the 20th century, leaping ahead to depict the artist’s great-grandson—also an artist.
