Broadwayworld.com has the story, with photos by Walter McBride/Retna Ltd.

Yesterday at Sardi's, I hosted the presentation of caricatures of three stars of Broadway's The Normal Heart revival: Joe Mantello, Ellen Barkin, and John Benjamin Hickey.

Barkin told me her son said this is the biggest kind of honor -- and it is, though she later joked to me that the portrait makes her looks like Scarlett Johansson.

Not that she was complaining, lol.

So you want his name so you can bitch about how bland he is?

"Boo!" that the artist whose work is the focus of the story isn't identified. (Though flattering, they are bland in terms of revealing anything about the subject's personality.)

I'm not proud of this, but after the unveiling, I went up to him and joked, "I want to fuck your portrait!"

Does John Benjamin Hickey have a boyfriend?  There's something so sexy about him...
