STAGE PORTRAIT: James Barbour and Jenny Powers in Irish Repertory's Donnybrook
15 Feb 2013
Acclaimed illustrator Ken Fallin's drawings of the greatest stars and scenes of the theatrical world are a recurring part of Playbill.com.
This week Fallin captures James Barbour and Jenny Powers in Irish Repertory Theatre's new production of Donnybrook!, the Johnny Burke-scored 1961 Broadway musical about the code of masculinity in Ireland. Off-Broadway performances began Feb. 7.
Ken Fallin began his career as an illustrator by lovingly mimicking the style of the late, legendary Al Hirschfeld for the poster art for Forbidden Broadway. Since that time he has been a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal as well as The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Hollywood Reporter, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune and The New Yorker.
His work has illustrated major ad campaigns for American Express, Showtime and Belvedere Vodka. Most recently, he was nominated for a 2010 Emmy for his animated commercial for CNBC.
