STAGE PORTRAIT: Off-Broadway's Avenue Q
By Playbill Staff
Acclaimed illustrator Ken Fallin's drawings of the greatest stars and scenes of the theatrical world are a recurring part of Playbill.com.
Fallin now captures the Off-Broadway cast of Avenue Q, the Tony Award-winning musical about twentysomethings seeking "purpose" after college. The musical by Jeff Whitty (book), Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx (songs) first bowed Off-Broadway and then found wider life after its transfer to Broadway (winning the Best Musical Tony Award).
Following that hit run, the show — still populated by people and puppets — is now nestled Off-Broadway again, at New World Stages.
Pictured below are the newest cast members (clockwise from top center) Veronica Kuehn and Adam Kantor with Princeton and Kate Monster.
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.
