“A brilliant production of Sondheim's best musical: spectacular, beautifully acted, moving, funny, glamorous and intelligent!” –Sunday Times
“A glorious revival...a ravishing epiphany of artistic harmony.” –The New York Times
“What truly distinguishes the effort is the depth of emotion each performer reveals.... Daniel Evans' baritone buzzes with intensity...while Jenna Russell's amber-hued soprano conveys conflicted frustration and admiration.” –LA Times
“I already foresee the Evans–Russell Sunday becoming my Sunday of choice, and I am glad to pass on an unqualified recommendation for this CD.” –Playbill

Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, in its most complete recording.

Audience and critics have been unanimous in their praise of this production, which recreates the world of Seurat's masterpiece Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte with the use of groundbreaking projection and animation technology. Now this legendary score and acclaimed production, directed by Sam Buntrock, have been preserved in a comprehensive two-disc set.
