Description

The making of the iconic musical Sunday in the Park with George is documented in this behind-the-scenes look.

The two-year odyssey of creating the iconic Broadway musical Sunday in the Park with George is chronicled in Putting It Together. In 1982, when James Lapine was just starting out as a playwright and director, he met Stephen Sondheim, a legendary Broadway composer and lyricist who was nineteen years his senior.Soon after, the two decided to write a musical based on Georges Seurat’s painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte from the nineteenth century.

The two Broadway icons lift the curtain on their beloved musical through conversations between Lapine and Sondheim, as well as most of the production team, and with a treasure trove of personal photographs, sketches, script notes, and sheet music.Putting It Together is a deeply personal remembrance of their friendship and collaboration, as well as the highs and lows of that journey, which resulted in the Pulitzer Prize–winning classic.
