The widely anticipated Broadway revival of A Raisin in the Sun opens on April 3 at the Barrymore Theatre with a cast led by two-time Oscar and Tony winner Denzel Washington and under the direction of Kenny Leon. To celebrate the opening of the new production of Lorraine Hansberry’s classic, Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson penned this portrait of the Younger family as they receive a troublesome offer from Karl Lindner that could affect the rest of their lives.
Clockwise from top left, the portrait features Washington as Walter Lee Younger, along with Bryce Clyde Jenkins as Travis, Anika Noni Rose as Beneatha, Sophie Okonedo as Ruth, LaTanya Richardson Jackson as Lena and David Cromer as Karl Lindner.
Broadway.com wishes the Younger family and the rest of the talented cast a happy opening! Here’s hoping your dream deferred becomes a dream realized.
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.
