  • Overview

    City Center is proud to announce that Sunday in the Park with George will "move on" to Broadway. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at or by calling 855-801-5876.

    Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece follows painter Georges Seurat (Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal) in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Consumed by his need to “finish the hat,” Seurat alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his lover Dot (Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford), not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years. Funds raised at the concert performances will allow City Center to make the performing arts accessible to the widest possible audience by subsidizing affordable tickets throughout the year.

    “Joyous and magnificently sung…this is one of those shows that seems destined to be forever spoken of with misty-eyed bragging rights by anyone who sees it.” –Ben Brantley, The New York Times (full review here)
