Synopsis

Sunday in the Park with George changed the very landscape of musical theatre. Inspired by Georges Seurat’s famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Sondheim and Levine’s musical depicts the inspiring journey, the joy, and the heartbreak of an artist committed to realizing his vision. Sunday in the Park is a daringly theatrical portrayal of human creativity through the lens of one particular work of art.

“My favorite musical of all time.” Stephen Colbert, The Colbert Report, 11/30/2011

Thursday, April 11, at 5:30 p.m. in the Studio Theatre.
Theatre Circle and the Department of Theatre and Drama present
Michelle Facos, History of Art

Professor Faco will discuss French painter Georges Seurat (1859–1891), his art, his world, and his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte - all in relation to our production of the Tony Award-winning musical, Sunday in the Park with George. Professor Facos is the author of many articles and books, including the recent Introduction to Nineteenth Century Art (Routledge 2011).

Join us as Michelle Facos "connects the dots" between a major painter, his masterpiece, and one of the smartest and entertaining musicals of the twentieth century.

Tuesday, April 16, after the performance of Sunday in the Park with George, please join us for a talk back with director George Pinney, members of the creative team and the cast to learn more about bringing this production to the stage.
