Sunday in the Park with George London 2020
One of the most acclaimed musicals of all time, in addition to its Pulitzer Prize Sunday in the Park with George has also won two Tony Awards and two Olivier Awards, among other honours and a plethora of nominations to boot. This stunning musical presents a fictionalised account of Georges Seurat in the period while he wrestles with the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.
As George (Jake Gyllenhaal) fights with himself and his surrounds to complete what would go on to become his most famous painting. Consumed by his intense need to finish the painting, George isolates himself from everyone and everything that was once important to him. He distances himself from society, from the art community and even his longtime lover Dot (Annaleigh Ashford).
His obsession reaches through time and informs the life of his great-grandson, and namesake George. The young artist has his own struggles with his art and his family identity.
