William Shakespeare’s classic romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet is getting a riveting Broadway revival starring Orlando Bloom as the sensitive hero and Condola Rashad as his true love. The Bard's heartbreaking tale of star-crossed lovers from warring families also stars (clockwise from top) Corey Hawkins as Tybalt, Chuck Cooper as Lord Capulet, Roslyn Ruff as Lady Capulet, Jayne Houdyshell as the Nurse, Brent Carver as Friar Laurence and Christian Camargo as Mercutio. Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson headed to Verona, the city of love, to take in director David Leveaux's contemporary production and pen a portrait of the headliners in action outside Juliet's famous balcony. Experience these passionate artists in action in Romeo and Juliet, now at the Richard Rodgers 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.
