The Georges Seurat painting, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” is the inspiration for this musical fantasy which celebrates the art of creation and the creation of art. The first half of “Sunday in the Park with George,” set in 1884, sees the painting 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.
