Peter Bonner is a New York based artist originally from Australia. We met as members of the choir singing the Ode to Joy in Carnegie Hall with the World Community Orchestra. He has been reading the libretto and listening to the music of Speakeasy for over a year now, and was inspired to create a series of artworks based on the musical and its themes. Here are pictures of much of Peter’s Speakeasy Art. You can see the artwork exhibited live in the lobby outside the Johnson theater at Theater for the New City while Speakeasy is in performance.
The following are sketches Peter Bonner made when considering potential poster art for Speakeasy:
