Broadway.com's resident artist Justin "Squigs" Robertson recently ventured to Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre to sketch Rebecca Hall, Michael Cumpsty and Morgan Spector, the stars of Sophie Treadwell's play, Machinal. Written in 1928 and based on the true story of the life and death of Ruth Snyder, Treadwell’s intricate, sticky cobweb of a play is the woeful tale of a Helen (Hall), a young woman stuck in a life she cannot bear. Directed by Lyndsey Turner, Machinal shows nine episodes in and around New York City as the audience pieces together what drove Helen to murder her husband (Cumpsty) in cold blood. After savoring Squigs' latest artwork, get tickets to see Hall make her Broadway debut in the chilling Machinal.
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.
