Vincent van Gogh grew to his fame after his death in 1890. Much of his personal life was left misunderstood as he was seen by the masses as an obscure kind of genius. For many years, we wrote letters back and forth with his brother, Theo, revealing the struggles and thoughts behind some of his most famous works. This one-man play takes place after Vincent's death as Theo recollects these letters and speaks about him to a gathering of peers. In this intimate production, we are transported to this gathering as if we are hearing about Vincent in an all new light for the very first time.
Vincent provides a multimedia experience for audiences by displaying Van Gogh's works on stage through projection as Theo talks about them. This way, the audience can view these paintings and drawings while listening to their backstories. This production is bound to peak viewers' curiosity about one of the world's most renowned artists and offer a brand-new perspective on his works.
As the premiere production of Patchogue Theatre's first educational initiative, "Live Edition," this program will also be performed for school groups across Long Island on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12 at 10:00 a.m. Students will be bussed in to see the live production and are provided with material to be studied in school. The goal for this program is to offer unique and enriching educational experiences for students across grade levels as well as subject areas.
