Connecting Philosophy, Sondheim and Seurat

By CAMPBELL ROBERTSON

 

The topic of the day’s seminar was “Kripke on Philosophy of Mind and Wittgenstein,” and the first couple of philosophers on the docket began speaking of the seeming possibility of the falsity of necessity and how it can be epistemologically possible to conceive of a metaphysical impossibility. As this was being discussed, a reporter discovered that it is very possible to contract a throbbing headache, and quickly.

 

But next to the reporter, a man sat with the easy and comprehending smile of someone at a folk-rock concert. He was Daniel Evans, currently in the running for a Tony Award for his performance as George in the Roundabout Theater Company’s revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s “Sunday in the Park With George,” the musical about art according to Seurat. Mr. Evans is a student of philosophy, not in the dilettante sense, but in the real, cram-for-the-exam sense. He just finished his fourth year in a six-year course for a bachelor’s degree in political philosophy. (Attending this seminar, at the City University of New York Graduate Center, was voluntary.) 

 

Under a barrage of Wittgensteinian logic that would break a lesser man, Mr. Evans kept up remarkably good humor. As soon as philosophy professor No. 3 wound up his lesson on, among other things, the appropriate application of the robust truth-conditional theory of meaning to Kripke’s rule following paradox, Mr. Evans dove into his backpack and came up with two bananas: one for himself and one for the fading reporter. “For low blood sugar,” he whispered helpfully.

 

Political philosophy, at least the political part of it, has been an interest for some time, said the boyish Mr. Evans, who arrived at the seminar in the tweed jacket and cap of a gentleman farmer. He then revealed, with a hint of mischief, that he has spent a night in a London police station for spray-painting political graffiti on a government building.

 

And suddenly, the kindly farmer-philosopher became a touch more complicated.

 

Mr. Evans, 34, was born in Rhondda, a small town in south Wales, in a valley once teeming with coal miners, the occupation of his grandfathers. Welsh was the language of his father and siblings when he was growing up. “Sondheim for some reason likes it,” Mr. Evans said. “He said after Russian, Welsh was his favorite sound.” (The impending passage of a bill preserving the Welsh language was the occasion for Mr. Evans’s run-in with the law; he thought the bill was too weak.)

 

There is a yearly cultural festival in Wales, the National Eisteddfod, in which Mr. Evans participated, and which propelled him into a career as a child actor. He went to acting school for a couple of years, then dropped out to join the Royal Shakespeare Company, which he would keep returning to after stints in other subsidized theaters like the National, the Donmar Warehouse and the Royal Court. In 1999 Trevor Nunn picked him to play Candide. Mr. Evans more or less taught himself how to do musical theater. He was nominated for an Olivier Award and became a rare creature: a musical actor with a deep classical background

 

It doesn’t take a casting director to tell what kind of roles Mr. Evans is naturally suited for. Puck, sure. Peter Pan, definitely. Sweeney Todd may be a bit of a stretch.

 

“I was playing young lads in new plays and young lovers in Shakespeare plays,” Mr. Evans said. His first Broadway role was Lysander in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”; his first Olivier Award was for his performance as Charley Kringas in “Merrily We Roll Along,” a musical in which characters start out middle-aged and become younger. An actor in “Merrily” is either most convincing in the beginning or the end. Mr. Evans’s strength was at the end.

ROUNDABOUT’S SUNDAY IN THE PARK START IN TORONTO STAR

The Toronto Star

Another lovely day in the park

Manhattan wowed by dynamic duo tackling new production of musical that shifts in time 100 years

By Richard Ouzounian

NEW YORK-Sometimes they say it’s best not to look behind the curtain, not to get too close to the source of the magic.

That’s what I was thinking recently after marveling at the performances given by Daniel Evans and Jenna Russell in the revival of Sunday in the Park With George that’s currently dazzling Gotham audiences.

Evans and Russell were both so perfect in the show that I was actually afraid of meeting them right after the matinee. How could the real life people be half as beguiling as the creatures they played on stage?

Well, for once, the doubters and naysayers were wrong. The pair are every bit as enchanting in person as they are behind the footlights – bright as buttons and fresh as paint with wit and charm to spare.

Russell is the one who asserts herself first, her glowing skin and wicked smile grabbing your attention, but Evans is not far behind, with sparkling eyes and a tremulous intensity in his voice that makes him equally engaging.

Sunday in the Park With George is actually two interrelated musicals set 100 years apart. In the first, set in 1884, we meet French pointillist artist Georges Seurat as he simultaneously completes his masterpiece A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, while working through his torturous relationship with his mistress, Dot.

In the second part, set in 1984, we meet Seurat’s great-grandson, also called George, who is working in America as a multimedia artist and taking counsel from his grandmother, Marie.

The challenge for Evans and Russell is not just playing two such different characters in one show, but doing so under the shadows of the roles’ famed originators, Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters.

“That’s been a scary mountain for us to climb,” admits Russell. “You feel that half of your battle here is to get past the iconic performances that went before you.”

“We have to pretend as if it had never been done before,” shares Evans. “That’s the only way we could do it.”

This production originated in London in 2006, at the tiny Menier Chocolate Factory Theatre, then transferred to London’s West End for a successful run.

Russell sighs over the fact that “when we did it in London, living up to the ghosts of the past wasn’t part of the job.”

But Manhattan critics and audiences have embraced their new performances. The cheering section is led by authors Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, “who championed us all along and made it possible for us to come here,” says Evans gratefully.

Asked what it was like to work with those two giants of musical theatre, the actors momentarily giggle like schoolkids, then Evans gasps, “Where do you begin?”

Russell was most impressed with the freedom with which they were able to interpret the authors’ work.

“There’s no control freakiness going on at all,” she insists. “After watching us perform, Stephen said, `You’re honouring the music too much, throw it away more, be more free.’

“He’s secure enough in his work and generous enough as an artist to allow us to try things.”

Evans was happily surprised by the kind of advice he was given by the authors. “They watched what we did, let us have free rein, then came in with a lot of very specific and strict notes that were aimed at our own interpretations.”

Sunday in the Park with George began previews on January 25, 2008 and opens officially on February 21, 2008 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street). The limited engagement has been extended twice and will now play through June 15, 2008.

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.
