Sunday In The Park With George is one of those shows you have to grow into, I think. When I was a teenager, and in the height of my experience working in theatre, I had no patience for it. I loved shows like Into The Woods and Funny Girl, while shows like Sunday In The Park With George and Company I found horribly boring and musically unfathomable.
But then, I grew up, and now Sunday In The Park is one of my all-time favorites. It's emotionally deep, and sad, and sophisticated. This sequence, in particular, beautifully showcases what it's like to be a hopelessly single-minded, obsessed artist, and what it's like to be unfortunately in love with one.
