Stephen Sondheim’s musical Sunday in the Park with George was inspired by the concept and the painting of Georges Seurat’s pointillist masterpiece, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” But here I’m referring to another George — Lucas, of course — and another park, this one being built in George Lucas’ longtime hometown, San Anselmo, California.
