On a Sunday afternoon at La Grande Jatte, French artist Georges Seurat is hoping to find the inspiration to create a masterpiece. As the piece comes together, the people come alive; his mother, his friends, his critics, and the woman he loves. Stroke by stroke, dot by dot, will he create something lasting, something new? This stunning masterpiece merges past and present into beautiful, poignant truths about life, love, and the creation of art. One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter, Georges Seurat, won a Pulitzer Prize and was nominated for an astounding ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Features students from the JMU School of Theatre and Dance.
