Some of the “best singers on the planet” are on Jim Caruso’s list at his Cast Party at Birdland, and last night they all had their performances memorialized by famed Broadway artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson.

Even though her songs gave Justin ample time to do an oil painting, she too got a quick drawing.
