Personally, I love it. Pure eye candy. It isn't some recreation of old artwork, something expected or something bland. It's got life and originality and fun written all over it. Plus, if they're competing with the huge marquee over at the Lyric with On The Town's boisterous artwork, this will be eye-catching for that small marquee in the hustle and bustle of 42nd. Re: her "invisible hand:" anyone with some aspect or degree of a designers eye will see that they have her entire wardrobe and body features in a silhouette around her face, which is the center of attention here. And yes, it resembles a mix between Cameron Diaz and Kristin Chenoweth but we all know if they pasted Kristin's face right on there with the animated background we'd all have something to say about that as well. Also re: "why just Kristin? Why not Peter?": If you have any background or knowledge of the show, you would know that it emphasizes on the actresses in that time period. It's nothing personal, just a simple theme of the show being brought out here on the artwork. A simple Google search would tell you that. I have attached an image of some of the original artwork. This is also for a production that is months away, I'm sure a caricature of Peter will turn up at some point - and then we can all b*tch about that one as well, as to why he looks more like say… I don't know… Adrien Grenier, than himself. Who knows!? I commend Roundabout and the creatives of this show on this artwork. The only disappointment here is that the Playbill will be in black and white, being at a Roundabout theatre and all.
