The Roundabout Theatre Company has announced a second extension of its Broadway revival of Sunday in the Park with George, which will now play through June 15 at Studio 54. Sam Buntrock's production, starring Daniel Evans and Jenna Russell, opened on February 21 to enthusiastic reviews. Sunday in the Park with George's run will now end on the day of the 2008 Tony Awards.
The Georges Seurat painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" serves as the inspiration for Sunday in the Park with George, a musical fantasy celebrating the art of creation and the creation of art. The first half, set in 1884, sees the painting and its rich comic tapestry come to life in a world where, for Georges, art comes before love, before everything. In the second half, set in 1980s New York, we see the great grandson of Georges and his search for inspiration in the world of contemporary art. For tickets and more information, click here.
