CHICAGO – Award-winning Porchlight Music Theatre is proud to announce that Tony Award-nominated Sean Allan Krill and Broadway’s Kathy Voytko will star in Porchlight in Concert: Sunday in the Park with George, Saturday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 12 at 2 p.m., at the Studebaker Theater, 410 S. Michigan Ave. This concert performance includes music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine and is directed by Artistic Director Michael Weber and music directed by David Fiorello. Single tickets for Porchlight in Concert: Sunday in the Park with George ($75 – $125, subject to change) are now on sale t PorchlightMusicTheatre.org/porchlight-in-concert or by phone with the Studebaker Theater box office at 312-753-3210. Tickets may also be purchased in-person at the Studebaker Theater, 410 S. Michigan Ave, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Tuesday – Sunday. 

Porchlight celebrates the 40th Anniversary of one of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated works with a new special event concert staging. Audiences will experience Sondheim and James Lapine’s Pulitzer-, Tony- and Oliver-winning musical masterpiece with the original Broadway orchestrations performed by musicians live on stage with an all-star cast at Chicago’s historic and beautifully restored Studebaker Theater. Based on Georges Seurat‘s painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,” which is on display just down the street from the Studebaker Theatre at the Art Institute of Chicago, this limited engagement brings to life the rich score telling the story of the months leading to the completion of Seurat’s famous work in 1886 and the effects of the artist and the art on people over the following 100 years.

 

“It’s an incredible feeling to be returning to Chicago with Porchlight,” said Sean Allan Krill. “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,” Kathy Voytko said. “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.”
