    Review: ‘Sunday in the Park With George,’ a Living Painting to Make You See

    Ben Brantley

    February 23, 2017: He is a thorny soul, a man neither happy nor particularly kind, and not someone you’d be likely to befriend. But when the 19th-century French painter Georges Seurat, reincarnated in the solitary flesh by a laser-focused Jake Gyllenhaal, demands that you look at the world as he does, it’s impossible not to fall in love.

    Theater Review: Jake Gyllenhaal in Sunday in the Park With George

    Jesse Green

    February 23, 2017: A 98-year-old woman named Marie sits in a wheelchair surveying the Georges Seurat painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1984. She is, she insists, the artist’s daughter by a model named Dot who appears at the front of the composition. “The child is so sweet and the girls are so rapturous,” Marie sings of the characters Seurat has gathered in perpetuity. “Isn’t it lovely how artists can capture us?”

    Jake Gyllenhaal’s Broadway Triumph: Review of Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Sunday in The Park With George’

    Tim Teeman

    February 23, 2017: You want to know about Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance, right? Whether, in the New York City Center production of Sunday In The Park With George (a limited-run extension of a one-off performance last October) he nails Stephen Sondheim’s jagged music and questing, fiendish lyrics? How are the Hollywood star’s inhabitations of Georges Seurat, and later George, Seurat’s great-grandson? Is he all butchness and beard, no nuance? How does director Sarna Lapine, niece of James Lapine, author of the musical’s book, convey Seurat’s famous 1884 pointillist painting, “Un dimanche après-midi à l'Île de la Grande Jatte” (“A Sunday afternoon on the island of the Grand Jatte”)?
