sunday in the park slide

This Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece merges past and present, offering beautiful, poignant truths about life, love and the creation of art.

Founder David Wo’s favorite musical, this is the show he always wanted to do. Theater Works never had the right space to mount it properly – until now! It is in his honor, and in the tradition he started of lovingly producing the works of the great Stephen Sondheim, that we present this for our 2016/17 season.

Inspired by the painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s stunning masterpiece Sunday In The Park With George merges past and present, offering 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 Georges Seurat and his modern heirs won a Pulitzer Prize and was nominated for an astounding 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical.

What I do know is that Mr. Sondheim and Mr. Lapine have created an audacious, haunting and, in its own intensely personal way, touching work.  Both at the show’s beginning and end, the hero is embracing not a woman, but the empty white canvas that he really loves – for its ”many possibilities.’‘ –Frank Rich, The New York Times

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine
