Squigs sketches Phantoms past and present in honor of the musical's 25th anniversary.

For 25 phabulous years, The Phantom of the Opera has been haunting Broadway audiences with its tale of a mysterious masked man and his wide-eyed musical muse. In honor of the show's big anniversary, Sierra Boggess is joining Hugh Panaro as Christine and the Phantom! resident artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson headed to the Majestic Theatre to experience the magic of the dazzling extravaganza, then sketched a passionate portrait of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber (bottom left) with Phantom stars past and present (clockwise from left): Sarah Brightman (original Christine), Michael Crawford (original Phantom), Panaro and Boggess. Get a closer look at Squigs' newest work of art above, then catch the 25th-anniversary cast of The Phantom of the Opera, celebrating their momentous milestone on January 26!

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. Click to e-mail Squigs. Photo by Matthew Murphy
