Sunday in the Park with George

Director Jim Peck joined hosts George Miller and Kate Scuffle to talk about Muhlenberg College's current production of Stephen Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George.

Sondheim's longing, luminous musical celebrates creative genius and the exquisite, excruciating process of trying to make art. Winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize, it is perhaps the most intimate and personal work of Sondheim's career.

Muhlenberg College will present Stephen Sondheim's musical, Sunday in the Park with George, from  Friday, October 27 to Sunday, November 5, 2017 at the Empie Theatre, Baker Center for the Arts. On this edition of Musings, host Kenn Michael talks with director James Peck who is also professor of theatre arts at Muhlenberg.

Sondheim's rarely-produced musical is based on a famous painting by Georges Seurat and centers on two artists who both strive to create masterpieces nearly a century apart.
