SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE RECIEVES TWO OUTER CRITIC CIRCLE AWARDS

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE COMPANY

 

SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE

Receives two Outer Critic Circle Awards

 

Outstanding Set Design: David Farley & Timothy Bird

Outstanding Lighting Design: Ken Billington

 

 

“The look of the show feels like thought made visible, just as Mr. Sondheim’s ravishing score, performed with gleaming delicacy, seems made of painterly flecks of light and color.”

 – Ben Brantley, New York Times

 

“Spectacular enough to make a Manhattan crowd gasp!”

 -Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

 

 

Sunday in the Park with George has received two Outer Critic Circle Awards for Outstanding Set Design (David Farley & Timothy Bird) and Outstanding Lighting Design (Ken Billington).

 

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) presents Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer Prize winning musical Sunday in the Park with George. This Olivier Award winning production of Sunday in the Park with George, is directed by Sam Buntrock with musical staging by Christopher Gattelli. Sunday in the Park with George stars Daniel Evans (George), Jenna Russell (Dot & Marie), Michael Cumpsty (Jules & Bob), Alexander Gemignani (Boatman & Dennis) and Jessica Molaskey (Yvonne & Naomi).

             

Sunday in the Park with George is playing a limited engagement through June 29th, 2008 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street). 

 

The Georges Seurat painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, is the inspiration for this compelling 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 and its rich comic tapestry 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 amongst the unfolding world of contemporary art.

 

Sunday in the Park with George was nominated for six Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, Outstanding Director of a Musical (Sam Buntrock) and Outstanding Actor & Actress in a Musical (Daniel Evans & Jenna Russell).  Sunday in the Park with George was nominated for five Outer Critic’s Circle Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical and Outstanding Actor in a Musical (Daniel Evans). Sunday in the Park with George was also honored with three Drama League nominations for Distinguished Revival of a Musical and Distinguished Performances (Daniel Evans & Jenna Russell).
