Description

Wilmington Drama League presents Sunday in the Park with George, the award-winning Sondheim musical (A Pulitzer Prize, two Tony’s, several Drama Desk Awards and the Olivier Award for Outstanding Musical) that brings a famous painting to exuberant life.

Inspired by George Seurat’s famous painting, this poetic masterpiece explores the challenges in understanding life and art. Sunday In The Park With George remains one of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated musicals. Its stunningly original concept inhabits both Georges Seurat’s famous painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte and details the parallel artistic endeavors of Seurat’s great-grandson a century later.

Inspired by the painting, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s stunning masterpiece merges past and present into beautiful, poignant truths about life, love and the creation of art. One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter won a Pulitzer Prize and was nominated for an astounding ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The production follows the relationship between Georges Seurat and his muse, Dot, and movingly tells of the struggle between art and passion while the painter’s vision is stunningly brought to life in front of the audience’s eyes using state-of-the-art live projection. As the story’s second act moves into the 20th century, the story focuses on the younger Seurat and his grandmother, Marie, the daughter of Georges and Dot. Seurat’s descendant – named George who is also an artist – finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past.
