Sunday in the Park with George  by  Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine

Platform Musicals & Plays


'Sunday in the Park with George' is inspired by the painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat. A complex work, with a lovely, wildly inventive score, the show revolves around a fictionalised Seurat, immersed in a single-minded concentration while painting his masterpiece and the people in that picture. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see on the most acclaimed of Sondheim's musicals.

Tickets: £13
