by BWW News Desk - Mar 4, 2009

One of the most beloved artists of the past century, it is largely forgotten that van Gogh's legacy was not always that of an artistic genius. In the one-man play 'Vincent', Theo van Gogh revisits the turbulent life of his brother, offering insight into the world of the tormented artist. Set in Paris 1890, only a week after his brother's dramatic death, Theo appeals to an audience of van Gogh's contemporaries who have written the painter off as an insane fool. The result is a moving effort to rescue his brother's legacy, transforming him from a madman into a beloved brother and misunderstood talent. (more...)
