Sunday in the Park with George — Sondheim, Lapine, and the Off-Broadway Experiment, or The End of Broadway

Amidst the aftermath of the initial 1981 Broadway failure Merrily We Roll Along, Sondheim felt alienated from the overtly commercial world of Broadway.

He meets a young playwright/director, James Lapine, who leads him into the world of Off-Broadway and a remarkable creative renewal. What emerges from their collaboration is an intimate, yet grand work of profound beauty and intelligence, a work that is nakedly tender, open, honest, and timeless in its astute exploration of “the art of making art.”
