A bunch of us have recently completed some animation that is being shown in Stephen Sondheims acclaimed play 'Sunday in the park with George' in which live stage actors interact with animated characters in the famous pointillest George Seurat painting 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte'.

Directed by Sam Buntrock, it include animation undertaken by John Keates, Shaun Freeman, Stephen Millingen and Sam Buntrock, with Matte paintings by Alex Laurant.

Content production was overseen by Timothy Bird

It is receiving RAVE reviews and will soon be moved to the West End

This sounds fantastic. Does anyone know if it will be touring through the United States sometime in the future?

Sounds intriguing. Given that I don't live in the UK, I'd love to see some of the animation if at all possible.
