Critics are raving about the emotional three-way battle between Rosemary Harris, Carla Gugino and Jim Dale in the Broadway mounting of The Road to Mecca, so Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robinson headed to the American Airlines Theatre to see the trio in action. Squigs penned an emotional portrait based on Athol Fugard’s drama about a elderly South African woman (Harris) who transforms her home into dazzling artwork after her husband’s passing. Take a look at Squigs’ interpretation of this candlelit classic, then get tickets to see the star-studded limited engagement, ending March 4.
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
