The one and only Billy Crystal is charming Broadway audiences all over again in his Tony Award-winning solo show 700 Sundays. The autobiographical show is Crystal's tender tribute to his father, who died of a heart attack when Crystal was just 15 years old, and his comedic account of growing up in Eisenhower-era Long Island with an unshakable desire to become an entertainer. The show's title refers to the fact that Crystal really only got to spend time with his father—a jazz connoisseur who worked multiple jobs—on Sundays. Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson headed to the Imperial Theatre to see the show everyone is buzzing about. Check out the portrait above, and don’t miss your chance to see Crystal in 700 Sundays on the Main Stem, now through January 2, 2014.
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.
