Jessica Hecht, Judith Light and Jeremy Shamos are confronting deep-seeded family squabbles in The Assembled Parties, a poignant drama by Richard Greenberg. Set in a sprawling Central Park West apartment, the Tony-nominated play tells the story of the Bascovs, a wealthy Jewish family who come together for their traditional holiday dinner in 1980. Twenty years later, as 2001 approaches, the Bascovs’ seemingly picture-perfect life may be about to crumble. Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson headed to the Friedman Theatre to watch the events unfold, then sketched a classy portrait of Hecht as Julie, Tony nominee Light as Faye, Shamos as Jeff, Jake Silbermann as Scotty, Jonathan Walker as Ben, Lauren Blumenfeld as Shelley and Mark Blum as Mort. Check out Squigs’ rendering, then see The Assembled Parties 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.
