Sunday in the Park With George, has extended 6 weeks - tickets now on sale for performances to 2 Sep 2006 at the Wyndham's Theatre.

The show, which had a sold out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory earlier this year before transferring to the West End at The Wyndham's Theatre, opening on 23 May 2006, following previews from 13 May 2006, received terrific notices from the popular press: NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Entrancing production ...enchanted evening that raises the status of the musical high." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "A masterpiece." SAM MARLOWE for THE TIMES says, "Exquisite production...the production is close to perfection."

The cast includes Daniel Evans (George), Jenna Russell (Dot) , Simon Green, Mark McKerracher, Alasdair Harvey , Liza Sadovy , Gay Soper.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine, directed by Sam Buntrock, designed by David Farley, lighting by Natasha Chiver.

The musical celebrates the art of creation and the creation of art. In the first half, set in 1884, the people – and the animals – in the painting come to life in a world where, for artist Georges, art comes before love, before everything. In the second half, set a century later, Seurat’s great-grandson is searching for inspiration amidst the unforgiving world of contemporary art in New York.
