Kai Harada Sound Design | Broadway Revival Sunday In The Park With George
Theatre content from Live Design: A quirky and wonderful musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, Sunday In The Park With George made its Broadway debut in 1984, as inspired by the famous pointillist painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, by George Seurat. The current Broadway revival, staring Jake Gyllenhaal as Seurat in 1884 and his illegitimate grandson in 1984, is at the newly renovated Hudson Theatre. It was designed by: Beowulf Boritt—sets; Ken Billington—lighting; Kai Harada—sound; Clint Ramos—costumes; and Christopher Ash and Tal Yarden—projections. Live Deisgn chats with sound designer Kai Harada.
