If Richard Kind’s vicious studio chief Marcus Hoff wasn’t terrifying enough in The Big Knife, then he certainly takes the spotlight in Justin “Squigs” Robertson’s Broadway Ink portrait of the stars of Roundabout Theater Company’s revival. Two-time Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale leads the show as movie star Charlie Castle, who is torn between a decision to stick with his monstrous studio boss (Kind) or his frustrated wife (Marin Ireland). Also popping up in Squigs’ salute to The Big Knife are Chip Zien as Charlie’s put-upon agent and Reg Rogers as Hoff’s right-hand man Smiley Coy. If you’ve seen the play, you’ll know that Squigs perfectly captured all of the drama of this classic Clifford Odets piece. Check it out for yourself at the American Airlines 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.
