Eamon is the Artistic Director at Grind Arts Company, creating innovative musical theater productions on stage and film. As a dancer, he has appeared on Broadway in Gypsy, Assassins, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and more. As a choreographer, he has collaborated with Tony-winner Michael Arden on Merrily We Roll Along, Annie at the Hollywood Bowl, WelcomeFest at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Arts, and many others.

In this reimagining of Sondheim's musical, Eamon uses dance as a tool to draw us into the mind of Georges Seurat as he paints, creating a physical manifestation of the creative struggle the artist endures. The result is a fresh and dazzling take on a beloved classic show.
