Grammy: Best Original Cast Recording
Close your eyes and “see” this performance.
Sondheim: Sunday in the Park with George. So many of the songs in this show are entirely dependent on their dramatic context. There was no way to reproduce Sunday in the Park with George on a recording without creating a new product that, with dialogue and music, conveyed the show in a continuous stream. The writers, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, prepared this adaptation. Benadette Peters (as always) is wonderful, as is George (Seurat) played by Mandy Patinkin.
