Straying from the traditional 'one playwright, one narrative' dramatic structure, the through line of this devised 60-minute show is a series of 20+ vignettes skimming the life and times of notable and troubled French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The individual scenes, which range from 'Nice Tea With Mother' to 'Venereal Diseases Aren't Funny: The Doctor' serve up brief-but-beguiling sketches of the people, places and problems of his 36-year life. What hinders this production is not the performers themselves, but the cramped performance space that affects lighting, actor movement, and audience sight lines.
