Sunday in the Park with George is a Sondheim masterpiece. And personally, working on a musical about artistic creation is dizzying and profound. Introducing Boston audiences to rising stars Adam Chanler-Berat and Jenni Barber is a thrill for me, as well as reuniting the world-class team of designers — and much of the fabulous Boston talent — from A Little Night Music.”— Peter DuBois

  • At the Huntington, two Georges, one Sondheim

    As part of their research for “Sunday in the Park With George,” director Peter DuBois and actor Adam Chanler-Berat took a field trip to the Art Institute of Chicago, where they spent the day ruminating over Georges Seurat’s iconic painting, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” The masterpiece of pointillism was the inspiration for the 1984 musical (with music by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine), which explores artistic creation and reinvention.

  • Look, He Made A Hat: Sondheim Talks Sondheim

    Happiness is a good rhyme: Stephen Sondheim's new memoir takes its title from a lyric that captures what songwriter Paul Simon -- in a New York Times review of the book -- describes as "that feeling of joy, the little squirt of dopamine hitting the brain" when an artist is at work.

  • Every Little Detail: Sondheim on Making Art in Sunday

    “Just when we think we know what Stephen Sondheim does, he does something else,” writes critic Sandor Goodhart. “Stephen Sondheim has continually eschewed repetition, continually sought to remake himself, to reinvent his style.” Each musical that Sondheim has written across his six-decade career breaks new ground, not only for the artist himself but for the musical theatre form. He brings a constant sense of surprise and reinvention to his work through two twin principles: artistic rigor and ingenuity.

  • Art a Century Apart: Sondheim’s inspirations for Sunday

    “I care a lot about art and the artist,” says composer Stephen Sondheim, exploring why he chose to base a musical off a famous work of visual art. “The major thing I wanted to do [with Sunday in the Park with George] was to enable anyone who is not an artist to understand what hard work it is.”

  • Twinkle, and Shimmer, and Buzz: The Chromolume in Process

    Georges Seurat, the painter whose work inspired Sunday in the Park with George, is most often associated with the movement of Pointillism, but Seurat did not use that word himself. Neither a follower of Impressionism or Expressionism, Seurat called his theory “chromoluminarism” (“color-light-ism”). Impressionists wanted to capture a fleeting moment. Seurat wanted to break down the composition of an image to its tiniest elements, and then recombine them. He wanted to change the way we perceived the world around us.

  • The Sondheim Cycle: Artistic Director Peter DuBois on The Huntington’s Commitment to the Work of Stephen Sondheim

    Before Peter DuBois directed A Little Night Music last season, he had started on the planning stages for a long-term artistic exploration of com poser Stephen Sondheim’s work – a project that will bring the Huntington and its audience on a decades-long journey. In an interview, DuBois shares what drives his enthusiasm for Sondheim’s work and a bit more about what audiences can expect.

  • Living in the Canvas: The Creation of Sunday in the Park with George

    “ART IS HARMONY. Harmony is the analogy of contrasting and similar elements of tone, color, and line.”

    — GEORGES SEURAT

    The winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Sunday in the Park with George is perhaps composer Stephen Sondheim’s most acclaimed score. It is also perhaps the most ambitious of his career — highly original in its inspirations and structure. The creation ofSunday marks a brave new period in Sondheim’s decades-long career.
