Sunday In The Park With George Revival | Ken Billington Lighting Design

Live Design: Sunday In The Park With George, inspired by the famous pointillist painting, A Sunday Afternoon On The Island Of La Grande Jatte, by George Seurat,where the painting is reproduced in Act One, and “Chromolume #7”, a kinetic light sculpture is simulated in Act Two, is currently on Broadway. The revival, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Seurat in 1884 and his illegitimate grandson in 1984, is at the newly renovated Hudson Theatre.

This was a fantastic and informative article. I always love the articles Live Design produces on the tech for shows--since it is tailored for production people, it is always fantastically informative, and its articles always include discussions of not only the concepts, but also how they were achieved by the production team. I especially like how they always discuss the challenges on the productions, and how the team overcame those challenges or issues. They also always include paperwork and gear lists, which for someone like me who loves looking at gear, is a great element. In addition, the articles, such as this one, always include photos showing what is being described in the article, which while obvious, helps give the reader a full idea of what the designer in the article is discussing. Of course, these articles wouldn't help any non-production people out, but in the end, that is not who LiveDesign is marketing to.
