Music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by James Lapine. One of the most critically-acclaimed and well-respected musicals of all-time will make its Hillcrest debut this January. "Sunday in the Park with George" is one of only a handful of musicals to ever win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This will also be the first time in over 20 years that Hillcrest has produced one of Stephen Sondheim's musicals. Sondheim is widely considered the greatest musical theatre composer and lyricist of all-time, and "Sunday in the Park with George" is one of his foremost masterpieces. Telling the story of 19th century french artist Georges Seurat in the first act, and then moving forward in time to the 20th century in the second act, this show explores the humanity and struggles of artists as they try to connect to the world around them.
