Sunday in the Park with George
The Roundabout Theatre Company has announced a third extension of its Broadway revival of Sunday in the Park with George, which will now play through June 29 at Studio 54. The critically acclaimed production, directed by Sam Buntrock and starring Daniel Evans and Jenna Russell, opened on February 21.
Inspired by the Georges Seurat painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte", Sunday in the Park with George is a musical fantasy celebrating the art of creation and the creation of art. The first half, set in 1884, sees the painting itself and 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.
