By Paul Willistein

“Sunday in the Park with George” connects on multiple levels in the Muhlenberg College Department of Theatre and Dance production, through Nov. 5, Empie Theatre, Baker Center for the Arts, Allentown.

The music and lyrics in the Steven Sondheim score, with book by James Lapine (the musical received the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama), state it succinctly and forcefully.

“Connect, George ... connect, George,” sings Evan Brooks, portraying Georges Seurat (1859 - 1891), the French post-Impressionist painter who devised chromoluminarism and pointillism.
