Notes & Reviews:

This is Stephen Sondheim's 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, in its most complete recording. This new album features the 2006 London cast, headed by Olivier Award-winner Daniel Evans and 2006 Olivier Award-nominee Jenna Russell. Audiences 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 ground-breaking projection and animation technology. The Sunday Times called it "a brilliant production of Sondheim's best musical: beautifully acted, moving, funny, glamorous, and intelligent." Now this legendary score and acclaimed production have been preserved in a comprehensive two-disc set.
