Capturing the manic energy of a spectacular farce on paper is a tall order, but that is just what Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson set out to do when he headed to the Music Box Theatre to check out British import One Man, Two Guvors! James Corden takes center stage as the title’s "one man," the none-too-bright Francis Henshall, who ends up working for two low-rent thugs in 1960s Brighton. He’s flanked by the two “guvnors” he must keep apart (Oliver Chris and Jemima Rooper) with Tony nominee Tom Edden appropriately underfoot as the aging, pacemaker-fueled waiter Alfie. The hilarious characters played by Suzie Toase, Claire Lams and Daniel Rigby look on, backed up by Fred Ridgeway, Martyn Ellis and Trevor Laird. Take a look at these Squigs’ rendition of these colorful comedians, then see them in action on Broadway.
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
