Sunday in the Park with George Sunday in the Park with George

Sunday in the Park with George  | 

February 14 — March 19

One of the most acclaimed musicals of all time, Sondheim’s most innovative and groundbreaking musical has rarely been produced in Los Angeles with the full-scale production it deserves—until now. Inventive, insightful, and in a class of its own, this ravishing, captivating masterpiece encapsulates the complexity of life—and the art of understanding it.

Recipient of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, “Sunday remains a masterpiece that affirms the painful, isolating joys of creation, and the need to learn new lessons. Like a densely plotted canvas, it’s worth seeing, no matter where or how it’s hung.” – Time Out New York

Sunday In The Park With George is a jewel in its own right, radiant with talent, and shimmering with color and light.”
