Broadway's A Little Night Music revival got a double dose of new star power on July 13, 2010, when Tony Award winners Elaine Stritch and Bernadette Peters stepped in to take over for departing stars Angela Lansbury and Catherine Zeta-Jones, respectively, at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Naturally, Broadway.com's resident artist, Justin 'Squigs' Robertson, couldn't resist the opportunity to celebrate by putting Stritch and Peters' much-anticipated mother/daughter pairing in ink, turning the Sondheim divas' artful arcs as Madame and Desiree Armfeldt into one literal work of art. We think Squigs does these dames justice in depicting "The Glamorous Life" of Night Music...though no picture can replacing hearing Stritch's "Liaisons" or Peters' "Send in the Clowns" in person. Welcome back to Broadway, ladies. We've missed you!
About the Artist: With a desire to celebrate the magic of live theater and those who create it, and with a deep reverence for such touchstones as the work of Al Hirschfeld and the wall at Sardi’s, Squigs is happy and grateful to be among those carrying on the traditions where theater and caricature meet. He was born and raised in Oregon, lived in Los Angeles for quite a long time and now calls New York City his home. Photo by Matthew Murphy
