Sunday in the Park with George

May 30 - June 24

Topfer Theatre

Stephen Sondheim’s Pulitzer Prize-winning musical masterpiece is a living painting by artist Georges Seurat, and centers on the artist as he discovers unimaginable possibilities while creating an enduring work of art. Seurat, known for juxtaposing points of multi-colored paint to allow the viewer’s eye to blend the colors, connects the dots that make life so passionate, unexpected, heartbreaking, and ultimately rapturous. The live, onstage orchestra brings the radiant score about the art of making art – and love – soaring to brilliant life with “tension, composition, balance, light, and harmony.” The gift of this musical is that the people who are the most different from us, may be the persons who illuminate ourselves to ourselves, and hold the key to our heart.

Age recommendation: 13 and up
Run time: Two hours and 40 minutes including one intermission



“… an audacious, haunting and, in its own intensely personal way, touching work. Mr. Sondheim and Mr. Lapine, have woven all those imaginative possibilities into a finished picture with a startling new glow.”  –The New York Times

“Sondheim’s soaring score sounds marvelous. Sunday’s emotional climax brings tears.” –Time Out New York

A substantial peek inside the mind of someone wrestling with their own genius… so magnificent and so emotionally rich.” –The Atlantic
