Sunday in the Park with George
Inspired by Georges Seurat's pointillist masterpiece, Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Sondheim and Lapine's musical celebrates the art of creation and the creation of art.
1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

In the second half, a century later, Seurat's great-grandson is wrestling with the same obsessions in present-day New York.
