One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.
Act One follows the inarticulate Seurat as he fights a losing battle to maintain a relationship with his mistress Dot as he creates his painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” amid the scorn of the artistic community. The second act takes place 100 years later, introducing us to his American descendant, also an artist, burned out and uncertain of the path he must take.
An ensemble of strong singing actors performs this challenging and heartbreaking work about our need to connect to the past, present and future. The show features two coveted starring roles made famous by the Broadway performances of Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters. The groundbreaking book and score by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, the authors of Into the Woods and Passion, contain some of their most beautiful and stirring work.
