What better day to write a quick note about my latest theatrical endeavor "Sunday in the Park With George" than on a Sunday? Rehearsals have begun and this show promises to be beautiful and brilliant. Composed by the musical genius Stephen Sondheim, this Pulitzer Prize winning play is centered around the creation of the painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grande Jatte" by the artistic genius Georges Seurat.
This musical happily reunites me with both the Artistic and Musical Directors of "Tommy" and a few cast mates, too! The opportunity to work with many more talented actors from around Rochester is exhilarating. It's my honor to be playing "Yvonne," a fictional character based on the woman in the center of the painting, with a little girl in one hand and a parasol in the other.
"Sunday.." begins it's run on July 30th and continues through August 13th. Please check Blackfriars for tickets and more details.
