Sunday in the Park with George

March 3 - 8, 2020

at The Old Jam Factory

SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at the Jam Factory, continues Eclipse’s mandate to bring unique and site responsive pieces of musical theatre that unite space and story. 2020 marks Sondheim’s 90th birthday and we are thrilled to bring this Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece to Toronto audiences after a long absence.

This piece revolves around George, a fictionalized version of Seurat, in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting. Consumed by his need to “finish the hat”, he alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists and neglects his lover Dot, not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years. The eternal search for connection is coupled with themes of legacy and art as commerce. The “state of the art” is fully investigated in this piece and could not be more relevant in today’s world climate.

“Assembling this top notch Canadian talent with the genius of Sondheim to present a re-imagining of this piece, using the talents of a live artist to bring it new life in this unique and intimate venue is sure to dazzle audiences once again.”

– Evan Tsitsias (Artistic Director)

The Jam Factory

The 150 year old historic space, originally the Sherrif Jam factory, had been closed for two years and re-opened as an event venue in February 2017. It retains the same exposed brick and gorgeous wood beam charm of the old venue; but with upgraded washrooms, a fresh catering prep space, and a newly-levelled floor showing off the jazz-age industrial decor and stunning sunsets overlooking the Don Valley.
