Chicago's Porchlight Music Theatre presents a concert version of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning Sunday in the Park With George May 11-12 at the Studebaker Theater.

Tony nominee Sean Allan Krill (Jagged Little Pill, Parade) stars in the title role with Kathy Voytko (The Music Man, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder) as Dot/Marie.

The two are joined by Bella Branshaw as Louise, Daniel de Cranie-Pierre as Boatman/Charles Redmond, Devin DeSantis as Bob Greenberg, Andres Enriquez as Mr./Lee Randolph, Veronica Garza as Nurse/Mrs./Harriet Pawling, Cory Goodrich as Yvonne/Naomi Eisen, Cecilia Iole as Celeste #2/Elaine, Samuel B. Jackson as Franz/Dennis, Chris Khoshaba as Soldier/Alex, Iris Lieberman as Old Lady/Blair Daniels, Chamaya Moody as Frieda/Betty, David Moreland as Louis/Billy Webster, and Alix Rhode as Celeste #1/Waitress plus ensemble swings Neala Barron and Billy Dwyer.

Artistic Director Michael Weber directs with music direction by David Fiorello. The design team includes costume designer Bill Morey, lighting designer Rachel West, sound designer Matthew R. Chase, and projection designer Liviu Pasare.

“It’s an incredible feeling to be returning to Chicago with
Porchlight,” said Krill in an earlier statement. “I am looking forward to being
back, where I began my career, performing Sondheim’s incredible work at
the beautiful Studebaker Theater.”

“I often say Chicago is my second home, and it's so wonderful to be
back home with Porchlight for this performance,” added Voytko.
“Sondheim's Sunday with its unforgettable, beautiful, and
haunting music is one of my favorites to perform. I can't wait to share
it with Chicago this spring.”

Inspired by Georges Seurat‘s painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” Sunday in the Park With George
opened on Broadway, starring Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters, in
1984, subsequently receiving Tony Awards for Best Scenic Design and Best
Lighting Design. The Pulitzer Prize for Drama followed in 1985.

Bill Walters is the stage manager, Drew Donnelly is the assistant stage manager, Heather Lynn Gervasi is the production manager, Majel Cuza is the director of production, and Frankie Leo Bennett is the producing artistic associate.
