For his latest creation, Broadway.com resident artist Justin 'Squigs' Robertson has captured the animosity between La Bete's resident intellectual Elomire (David Hyde Pierce) and buffoonish clown Valere (Mark Rylance) while the play's prickly Princess (Joanna Lumley) and her court's adoring actors look on. Much like playwright David Hirson uses a highly stylized rhyming verse format to win laughs, Squigs shows off his own signature style when it comes to capturing Broadway's biggest stars. Take a look at the dazzling drawing and be sure to check out La Bete for yourself, now playing at the Music Box Theatre.
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
