Description
"A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the iconic Broadway musical Sunday in the Park with George"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
In 1982 Lapine, at the beginning of his career as a playwright and director, met Stephen Sondheim, nineteen years his senior and already a legendary Broadway composer and lyricist. Shortly thereafter, the two decided to write a musical inspired by Georges Seurat's nineteenth-century painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Here Lapine chronicles the two-year odyssey of creating the iconic Broadway musical Sunday in the Park with George, accompanied by a treasure trove of personal photographs, sketches, script notes, and sheet music. The result is a deeply personal remembrance of their collaboration and friendship, and the highs and lows of a journey that resulted in a Pulitzer Prize-winning classic. -- adapted from jacket
