Broadway is welcoming a new pair of Wicked witches, which makes it the perfect time for our resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson to pay a visit to the Gershwin Theatre. Broadway vet Jackie Burns has returned from the show’s national tour to play green witch Elphaba opposite Chandra Lee Schwartz as “popular” blonde Glinda. Check out his enchanting portrait of the actresses, then check out this latest match-up live on Broadway, where Wicked is approaching its eighth anniversary as a sold-out hit.
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. Click to e-mail Squigs. Photo by Matthew Murphy
