The Spring 2017 edition of The Lights of Broadway Show Cards—baseball card-style trading cards featuring images of Broadway stars, shows, and institutions—is now available.
The cards are the brainchild of illustrator Justin “Squigs” Robertson and Tony and Emmy-Award-winning theatrical producer and filmmaker Dori Berinstein.
Included in the newest edition are show cards dedicated to Dear Evan Hansen, Anastasia, War Paint, Sunday in the Park with George (featuring Jake Gyllenhaal), and more. Among the artists included are Hamilton’s Okieriete Onaodowan, Mandy Gonzalez, Derek Klena, Andy Karl, Corey Cott, Lynn Nottage, Paula Vogel, and Sara Bareilles.
Rare cards released in the collection include Chess and Flora, The Red Menace, as well as limited edition signed cards from Jennifer Holliday, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Josh Groban; a foil-embossed card for La La Land; a lenticular card featuring Broadway Dollys Carol Channing, Pearl Bailey, and Bette Midler; and a special card honoring the late Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher.
Sales from several of the limited edition rarites will support charitable organizations including Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, The Actors Fund, Find Your Light Foundation, The Trevor Project, and Planned Parenthood.
