In “The Lights of Broadway”, LeRoy Neiman brings together a vibrant collage of the world’s most renowned musicals, and displays them on billboards in the heart of Times Square in New York City. He used black paper to display a nighttime view, and to make the neon colors stand out. If you look closely to the bottom of the page, you will see Neiman in his coveralls standing on an island sketching the beautiful scene you see before you.
LeRoy wanted to display a numerous amount of plays that the average person would of at least seen one of or heard of in their lifetime. My Fair Lady was deliberately placed at the top in bright pink, because it was LeRoy’s favorite play. From the foot traffic on every block, to the yellow taxis and fancy cars driving down street & police officers on horseback, Neiman wanted you to get the feeling that you spent a night in city that never sleeps.
