What is Sunday in the park with George about?
The story of Sondheim and Lapine’s masterpiece follows painter George Seurat, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon On The Island Of La Grande Jatte in 1884. Seurat alienates the French bourgeoisie after becoming consumed by his need to “finish the hat”, becoming isolated from everyone including his neglected lover Dot, played by Annaleigh Ashford. After spurning his fellow artists, Seurat does not realise that his actions are set to reverberate over the next 100 years.
The story is based on the real painter George Seurat, creator of the famous pointillist painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, however his character represents a fictionalised version of Seurat’s life. Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine were inspired by Seurat’s masterpiece to write the musical portraying their depiction of a troubled artist, caught up in a collision of inspiration and hopelessness in a story filled with soul.
