Clever, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Whimsical, Low-key

See it if you love small-theater experiences. The actor tells the story of Van Gogh in the first person, with energy and wit

Don't see it if you want a full theatrical experience with props and plot. The actor speaks and bartends while audience members draw each other and drink

Also This was the first time the actor decided to stand behind the bar and ... Read more Read less

Funny, Absorbing, Romantic, Entertaining, Artlovers

See it if Watch DeForest do an excellent job inhabiting Vincent van Gogh. He is by turns dramatic, soulful, self-deprecating and an unabashed art snob

Don't see it if you don't want a fun, intimate one person show with the lightest audience involvement. Like some communal drawing.

Also I've seen Walter Michael DeForest perform this in Edinburgh and New Yo... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Riveting, Entertaining

See it if We've all seen Van Gogh's work but who was he? DeForest gives an intimate "visit" with the man, himself, balancing the torment with humour.

Don't see it if Don't expect a completely scripted production as DeForest interacts spontaneously with his audience and each performance must be unique.
