It takes a brave (or foolish) young writer to entrust his work to the judgment of fearsome literary lion Leonard—especially since Leonard is played by stage-and-screen great Alan Rickman in the new play Seminar! Just before the play's November 20 opening night, Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson took a seat at the Golden Theatre to see Rickman match wits with students played by Lily Rabe, Jerry O’Connell, Hamish Linklater and Hettienne Park. His portrait shows Rickman in all his glory, holding forth on the importance of the written word with students who both revere and fear him. Get tickets now to see this new comedy by Theresa Rebeck, featuring a top-notch cast.
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
