The explosive family comedy The Velocity of Autumn opens officially on April 21 at Broadway’s Booth Theatre. Oscar winner Estelle Parsons and Tony winner Stephen Spinella star in Eric Colbe’s play under the direction of Molly Smith.
In celebration of the show’s opening night, Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson sketched this portrait of Parsons and Spinella in the Brooklyn Brownstone that Parson's character Alexandra barricades herself in.
Broadway.com wishes The Velocity of Autumn a happy opening. Just keep those Molotov cocktails on stage.
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.
