Musical Theatre Guild presents SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE

May 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$30 - $45

Musical Theatre Guild presents a staged concert version of
SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE

Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Book: James Lapine

Winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for drama, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE is an enchanting show with a complex, beautiful, haunting score reflecting Georges Seurat’s imagined journey as he creates his most famous painting: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Then in classic Sondheim/James Lapine style it presents a second act centered around a modern-day descendant, also a George, an artist blocked and wrestling with the pursuit of his creative spark in today’s commercial world.

Act I premiered Off-Broadway in 1983 starring Bernadette Peters & Mandy Patinkin and on Broadway with both acts in 1984. It also won the Drama Desk & NY Drama Critic’s Circle Awards, was nominated for 11 Tony© Awards, & won for scenic & lighting design. Revived on Broadway in 2008 & 2017.
