WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Jake Gyllenhaal) in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte." Consumed by his need to "finish the hat," Seurat alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his lover Dot (Annaleigh Ashford), not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.
In addition to Gyllenhaal and Ashford, the cast features Tony nominee Brooks Ashmanskas (Mr., Charles), Jenni Barber (Celeste #2, Elaine), Tony nominee Phillip Boykin (Boatman, Lee), Mattea Marie Conforti (Louise), Erin Davie (Yvonne, Naomi), Claybourne Elder (Soldier, Alex), Tony nominee Penny Fuller (Old Lady, Blair), Jordan Gelber (Louis, Billy), Tony winner Robert Sean Leonard (Jules, Bob), Liz McCartney (Mrs., Harriet), Tony winner Ruthie Ann Miles (Frieda, Betty), Ashley Park (Celeste #1, Waitress), Jennifer Sanchez (Nurse), David Turner (Franz, Dennis), Max Chernin, MaryAnn Hu, Tony nominee Michael McElroy, Jaime Rosenstein, Julie Foldesi, and Andrew Kober.
