An exhilarating look into the mind of a misunderstood genius, a one-man show on the life and art of Van Gogh.
We've reached our goal, but you can still show your support!
There are still tickets available to the show and great prizes available, every dollar pledged goes towards making this production the best it can possibly be -- our budget is over twice our Kickstarter goal -- and independent, non-profit theater is impossible without the support of friends and community.
You can purchase your tickets here on Kickstarter, or buy them via:
Thank you everyone who helped bring Vincent to our Kickstarter goal! The support we've felt has truly been phenomenal.
Merci mille fois!
Performances start October 7th at The VS Theatre (formerly known as The Black Dahlia) in Los Angeles, Sundays at 6PM for a 6 week run.
Through your support and enthusiasm, we hope to raise $2,000 which will help cover rental space, sets, and props as well as other production needs for the show. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for any pledge. Note, if we do not reach our goal, we will not see a penny -- so please spread the word!
About the Play: A few days after the death of little known painter Vincent Van Gogh, rumors are flying in Paris. Some say he was a penniless madman, a frequenter of prostitutes, a derelict and soon to be forgotten artist of trifling quality. Others denounce him as a wayward priest and a foreigner. Many whisper he took his own life in a moment of insanity.
His brother Theo, Vincent's confidante and lifelong supporter, is enraged. Tonight, he hopes to set the record straight.
About the Author: Leonard Nimoy is a renowned actor, writer, film director, poet, musician and photographer. He is perhaps best known for originating the role of Spock in the Star Trek series, for which he received three Emmy Award nominations and legions of fans.
Mr. Nimoy was inspired by the play Van Gogh, by Phillip Stevens. In writing Vincent, he expanded on Stevens' work and drew on a treasure trove of source material -- over 500 letters written between Van Gogh and his brother Theo in the ten years Vincent struggled to master his art.
