Fan favorite Wicked is having a hot summer with several new cast members, including Broadway.com’s newest video blogger Lindsay Mendez. The Broadway blockbuster (which recently celebrated 4,000 performances) explores the untold story of Oz’s green sorceress Elphaba, her friend Glinda and the mystical Wizard. Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson spent one short day in Emerald City to capture the magical new headliners for this “greenified” portrait. Check out Wicked stars Katie Rose Clarke as Glinda and Mendez as Elphaba, surrounded by supporting players (from left) F. Michael Haynie, Catherine Charlebois, John Schiappa, Randy Danson, Derek Klena and Adam Grupper. To see these wonderful Wicked actors live, head over to the Gershwin 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.
