VINCENT by Leonard Nimoy Comes to Palo Alto

Vincent van Gogh is known as one of the greatest painters who ever existed-and yet, he was one of the loneliest and misunderstood souls during his lifetime. His work was dismissed as that of a madman, save for one person who consistently provided unending love, encouragement, and support to Vincent in his artistic endeavors: his brother Theo. The sole believer in Vincent's talent, Theo sent money and supplies to his brother and each night, after painting for fourteen to sixteen hours, Vincent would write to his brother.

In hundreds of letters that Theo lovingly saved, Van Gogh left behind the story of his life in soul-searching detail. Leonard Nimoy spent years researching the over 500 letters that survived, using them as the basis for Vincent, which he performed for over 100 performances in 35 cities to unanimous acclaim. Actor Jim Jarrett assumed the role in 1994, playing to sold-out audiences in performing arts centers, theaters and museums throughout the world. The New York Times calls Vincent "compelling, humorous, inspiring and most of all, educational. Those who attend will never be able to look at Vincent or his work the same way again."
