Sunday at the Park With George Studio 54

When I bought the entry hesitate: “Studio 54 “. When I saw the logo on the door of the theater yelled, “Studio 54!” Yes, a week ago I went to the theater to see the musical “Sunday in the Park with George” by Stephen Sondheim and the surprise was twofold. The first surprise was the theater. The madman Studio 54 where the bohemians of New York met. Among them: Michael Jackson, Rudolf Nureyev, Elton John, Truman Capote, Margaret Trudeau, John Travolta, Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Gloria Swanson, Mae West, Farrah Fawcett, Martha Graham, Lorna Luft, Divine, Rod Stewart, Alice Cooper, Suzanne Somers, Bette Davis, Freddie Mercury, Zsa Zsa and Eva Gabor, Bette Midler, Hugh Hefner, Diane von Furstenberg, Eartha Kitt, and so on. The second sorpesa: the musical. Sondhemiana reflection of the painting and the passage of time. The French painter Georges Seurat is the star of this production.Marshall McLuhan said of him that was the forerunner of television by using the so-called pointillist technique in his paintings. Well, this version of “Sunday” using digital technology to stage Seurat’s paintings. And what projections … “Sunday in the Park” is not a musical that has left many “hits” … may “Finishing the Hat” and “Move On” are the two most recognizable tunes. For those who want to remember or see for the first time here is the “Move On” by Mandy Patinkin.
