Thursday at the Theater with Bob

A long, long, long time ago I saw Sunday in the Park with George in New York, starring Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters. It was fabulous. When we headed out to Chicago Shakespeare Theater on Halloween night to see CST's latest version of the show I must admit I was afraid. I couldn't imagine how it could live up to a show I loved and that had been further polished by fond memories. SURPRISE! Jason Daneley, as George Seurat, and Carmen Cusack, as Dot, did not disappoint - they were fabulous! The show was great. It was a night for treats.

The scribbled sketches were boxed and colored later at home. The CST logo is from the program.

When you're in Chicago be sure to stop at the Art Institute and see George Seurat's masterpiece, A Sunday on La Grande Jotte. It won't disappoint either.


  1. Really like these figure drawings...they're great. I'm still struggling with mine trying to make them work. Which is why I enjoy yours so much. By-the-way, I was in Oak Park yesterday at my niece's house. Had time to tour Frank LW's house and studio. Pretty neat. To cold to sketch outside though.

    1. Thanks Dave! I always gravitate towards sketching the people and architecture is a real challenge for me. I love FLW's house in Oak Park. Come spring I plan to go back and sketch - hopefully the architecture!

  2. Oh, I'll bet that was wonderful! You really captured the flavor.
