ABOUT SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE
The Huntington Theatre Company opened its 35th anniversary season with Stephen Sondheim’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Sunday in the Park with George. Performances run through October 16, 2016 at the Avenue of the Arts / BU Theatre.

One of the most acclaimed musicals ever, Sunday in the Park with George features a glorious score, including the songs “Finishing the Hat,” “Putting it Together,” and “Move On,” with a book by James Lapine, choreography by Daniel Pelzig (A Little Night Music and Candide at the Huntington), and music direction by Eric Stern (music director for Marty and conductor for A Little Night Music at the Huntington).

Sunday in the Park with George was inspired by Georges Seurat’s painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Act one is set in 1884 and explores how the painting comes to life. The second act jumps forward 100 years and follows George’s great-grandson’s search for inspiration and what it means to create art in a contemporary world. Sunday in the Park with George is a transcendent love story that connects the past to the future through the lens of art and creation. The New York Times calls Sunday in the Park with George, “An audacious and touching work with a lovely, wildly inventive score.”
