Inspired by George Seurat’s magnificent painting, ‘A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte’, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s soaring musical is itself an artistic masterpiece. The musical begins with the story of George and his model and lover Dot. As George struggles to find his artistic voice, he becomes more and more distant from the one woman who truly sees him for who he really is. Meanwhile, the characters that inhabit George’s painting have lives unto themselves, which George captures with his paintbrush. Through melodic and heartbreaking music, poetic lyrics, and quick, jaunty wit, Sunday in the Park with George reveals universal truths about the nature of art, love, and passion, with the breadth and depth of art’s most enduring masterpieces.

SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE

Liz Lochhead's Mary Queen of Scots got her Head Chopped Off is a Scottish classic, studied at the Grade 12 level in Scottish schools. Yet it is no stately text but a raw, rough telling of a tale so often told from the English side, where the focus is on Elizabeth the First and Mary gets short shrift, appearing usually as a mere caricature. But here the emphasis is on Mary, past Queen Consort of France, Queen of Scotland since she was 6 days old, and on how she tries to control a land riven with sectarianism, with plots and counterplots, while continuing to be a passionate and beautiful woman of flesh and blood. In what has been called her "scavenging eclecticism of language", Lochhead sets out a tale of a queen who has failed to learn what Elizabeth did, that a queen must rule with her head not her heart. But, as one critic puts it, " Lochhead turns her attention to this period of history with a distinctive pen and style that refuses to fall into anti-English sentiment nor introspective mush" (Donald Stewart, 2013).
