Book by James Lapine

White: A blank page or canvas. So much possibility.
As part of the international celebration of Stephen Sondheim’s 80th birthday, the life and work of Georges Seurat and his most famous painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” come to vivid life in this Pulitzer-Prize winning musical directed by Elliot Norton Award winning director Scott Edmiston. With light, color, and harmony, this glorious masterwork reveals surprising truths about making art, seeing art, and how art connects our lives…dot by dot.
