About Sunday in the Park with George

Stephen Sondheim’s stunning masterpiece centers on enigmatic painter Georges Seurat and his search for love, inspiration, and “the art of making art.” One of the most acclaimed musicals ever, this Pulitzer Prize winner features a glorious score, with the songs “Finishing the Hat,” “Putting it Together,” and “Move On,” is directed by Artistic Director Peter DuBois (A Little Night Music), and features Adam Chanler-Berat (Broadway's Peter and the Starcatcher and Next to Normal) and Jenni Barber (Wicked).

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 40 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.

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
