What do you get when you combine two existential dramas and two knights? No Man’s Land and Waiting For Godot on Broadway, starring stage-and-screen buddies Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson headed to the Cort Theatre to sketch both shows, currently playing in repertory. In the top portrait above, Squigs depicts Samuel Beckett’s Waiting For Godot, featuring McKellen as Estragon, Stewart as Vladimir, Billy Crudup as Lucky and Shuler Hensley as Pozzo (also, see if you can spot Colin Critchley, alternating the role of Boy with Adian Gemme). Below, he turned his pen to Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, featuring McKellen as Spooner, Stewart as Hirst, Crudup as Foster and Hensley as Briggs. Check out Squigs’ masterpiece below, then catch both Waiting For Godot and No Man’s Land on Broadway through March 2!
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.
