In the Broadway revival of Harvey, two-time Emmy winner Jim Parsons stars as Elwood P. Dowd, a man with a very unusual best friend: a six-foot rabbit who happens to be invisible. Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson headed to Studio 54 to track down Dowd’s invisible pal and capture his fuzzy likeness in a portrait. After taking in a performance of Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Robertson sketched Parsons, Harvey and their castmates (clockwise from bottom left) Charles Kimbrough as William R. Chumley, M.D., Carol Kane as Betty Chumley, Morgan Spector as Lyman Sanderson, M.D., Holley Fain as Ruth Kelly, R.N., Rich Sommer as Duane Wilson, Angela Paton as Mrs. Ethel Chauvenet, Tracee Chimo as Myrtle Mae Simmons, Larry Bryggman as Judge Omar Gaffney and Jessica Hecht as Veta Louise Simmons. Check out Squigs’ depiction of Harvey, then see the production in a limited engagement through August 5!
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
