“Sunday in the Park with George” at the Cotuit Center for the Arts

COTUIT – Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical “Sunday in the Park with George” is playing at the Cotuit Center for the Arts on through Sunday, July 30. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 4 PM.

One of the most highly acclaimed musicals of all time, “Sunday in the Park with George” won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1985, two Tony Awards for design, and numerous other awards and nominations.

David McCarty directs and choreographs the show; Henry Buck is musical director.

The musical follows George Seurat in his search for love, inspiration, and the “art of making art.”

The first act takes place in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting.

Consumed by his need to “finish the hat,” Seurat spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his charming lover Dot, not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.

Act 2 takes place a century later in Chicago, where Seurat’s painting is exhibited, as another George grapples with many of the same artistic issues that his great-grandfather was obsessed with.

Tickets are $32, $29 for seniors and veterans, $27 for members, and $15 for students.
