Welcome Back to Broadway, Motown!

first_img We heard through the grapevine that Motown The Musical has returned to the Great White Way, so we’re here to celebrate the best way we know how: with a portrait from Squigs!Broadway.com resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson penned the above sketch in honor of the jukebox musical, which is now playing the Nederlander Theatre through November 13. The portrait features Chester Gregory as Berry Gordy, Allison Semmes as Diana Ross, Jesse Nager as Smokey Robinson and Jarran Muse as Marvin Gaye. Looking over them all is the real, present-day Berry Gordy in the top left.Welcome back to Broadway, Motown; thanks for having us dancing in the street (41st, specifically)! 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. © Justin “Squigs” Robertson Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on July 31, 2016 Motown The Musical View Commentslast_img
