Squigs visits the suburban Chicago home in 'Clybourne Park.'

Bruce Norris captures the ever-shifting racial tension as seen through the lens of real estate in his Pulitzer Prize-winning play Clybourne Park, and Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson set out to capture it in ink. Inspired by Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, the tension-filled comedy centers on a pair of charged transactions involving one house, first in 1959 and then in 2009. The show’s mid-century homeowners, played by Christina Kirk and Frank Wood, take center stage in this portrait, surrounded by castmates Brendan Griffin, Jeremy Shamos, Annie Parisse, Damon Gupton and Crystal A. Dickinson. Feast your eyes on this nuanced portrait of the talented ensemble cast, then see them in person at the Walter Kerr 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. Click to e-mail Squigs. Photo by Matthew Murphy
