The musical Sunday In the Park With George is a celebration of life and art. George, a poor impressionist painter brilliantly captures the young ladies, couples, children, tramps and their dogs enjoying a Sunday afternoon stroll in a park in Paris. As George sketches his lover Dot and the painting becomes a work of art — their relationship falls apart. 100 years later the painting hangs in an art gallery, admired and discussed, studied and criticised, but what happened to the characters in the picture when it was completed? Immortalised forever in a single moment by the painters brush, but life and art goes on. Music and lyrics are by Stephen Sondheim, with a book by James Lapine. Sam Buntrock directs.
