Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson recently checked out the sexy and provocative Forever Tango, Luis Bravo’s internationally acclaimed production, which opens on July 14 at the Walter Kerr Theatre for a 10-week run. Dancing with the Stars duo Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy perform the sensuous dance of lovers (through August 11), with guest vocalist Gilberto Santa Rosa (through July 28), 16 world-class tango dancers and an 11-piece orchestra. After seeing the action, Squigs penned a portrait of Forever Tango's magnetic company, including (clockwise from top) Victoria Galoto, Juan Paulo Horvath, Chmerkovskiy, Smirnoff and Santa Rosa. Check out the irresistible portrait, then head to Broadway to watch the tango in person.
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.
