TODAY IN THEATRE HISTORY: In 1984, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine spend Sunday in the Park with George as their new musical opens on Broadway at the Booth Theatre. The show, which brings the famous George Seurat painting to life, stars Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters. It will go on to run for 604 performances, and win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
