Play Drawings — Caricature of Actors
“Our very own Hirschfeld!,” commented one theatre official on seeing some of Dennis Porter’s play caricatures, a drawing of performers on their stage.
(Dennis was more than flattered — he greatly admires the famous caricaturist who drew performers on Broadway for the Village Voice newspaper for decades. No artist will ever compare to the genius of Mr. Hirschfeld, of course.)
Most of these were published in the Dayton City Paper alongside the critic’s review of that play.
