Squigs captures the sibling strife between Boyd Gaines and Richard Thomas in 'An Enemy of the People.'

Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines and Emmy Award winner Richard Thomas play dueling brothers in Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway production of Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People. Adapted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, the fast-paced thriller tells the story of Dr. Thomas Stockmann (Gaines), who discovers toxic pollution in the water used at the local baths. When the doctor brings his findings to Peter Stockmann (Thomas), his brother and the town’s mayor, he believes the public will cast him as a local hero. However, the mayor believes the news will devastate the town, and the brothers’ relationship becomes as toxic as the contamination. A dramatic battle of political willpower and personal ethics erupts. Check out Broadway.com resident artist Justin "Squigs" Robertson's take on this intense tale, then see An Enemy of the People at the Samuel J. Friedman 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.
