AussieTheatre has a double pass to giveaway to Sunday In The Park With George at the Whitehorse Centre on Saturday 10 August, 7.30 pm. Presented by Whitehorse and Watch This Productions.
In Paris, 1884, George Seurat strives to transform the way we see. While he sketches in a park, preoccupied with composition, balance, light and harmony, his subjects are busy wrestling with life in a changing world – in particular, his muse and mistress, Dot, who feels both alive and invisible within his gaze.
A century on, another visual artist – also named George – faces a similar dilemma as he attempts to forge a new direction amidst the pressure of high-end commissions and the merciless glare of New York critics.
Inspired by Seurat’s Impressionist painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Sunday in the Park with George is a masterpiece in its own right. Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine bring the past into the present tense, with poignant and painful truths about life, love, the creation of art and the struggle to be seen. One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study won a Pulitzer Prize and was nominated for an astounding ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Following a sell-out season of A Little Night Music in 2018, acclaimed Sondheim repertory company, Watch This, is thrilled to return to the Whitehorse Centre with Sunday in the Park with George.
Competition closes on 2 August at 6 pm AEST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.
