WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Roundabout Theatre Company presents The Menier Chocolate Factory's Olivier Award winning production of Stephen Sondheim & James Lapines Pulitzer Prize winning musical Sunday in the Park with George, directed by Sam Buntrock. * Roundabout's production of Sunday in the Park with George is recreating Georges Seurat's masterpiece "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," dot by dot. Help us fill in the image at Connect: The Dot Project The Georges Seurat painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jette," is the inspiration for this compelling musical fantasy which celebrates the art of creation and the creation of art. The first half of Sunday in the Park with George, set in 1884, sees the painting and its rich comic tapestry come to life in a world where, for Georges, art comes before love, before everything. In the second half, set in 1980s New York, we see the great grandson of Georges and his search for inspiration amongst the unfolding world of contemporary art.
