What is Sunday in the Park with George about?
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine were inspired to write the musical by the George Seurat masterpiece A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. The musical follows a fictionalised version of painter Georges Seurat, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, as he struggles to complete what would become his most famous painting. Overwhelmed by his need to ‘finish the hat,’ George isolates himself from everyone important to him. He separates himself from society, disregards his fellow artists, and turns away from his longtime lover Dot (Annaleigh Ashford). His obsession has far-reaching consequences and we see these effects play on his great-grandson, also named George who has his own conflicts as a cynical contemporary artist.
