Also coming up at Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz is Van Gogh…

a captivating one-man performance by acclaimed French actor Jean-Michel Richaud portraying Vincent Van Gogh, on Feb. 7, at 7:30 p.m.

Written by Leonard Nimoy, directed by Paul Stein and inspired by Phillip Stevens’ Van Gogh, the play paints a thoughtful imaginary scenario about one of the most famous names in the art world, using excerpts and reminiscences from more than 500 letters exchanged between Vincent Van Gogh and his brother, Theo. It is the story of Vincent’s life, as told by Theo. Throughout the play, more than a hundred of Van Gogh’s paintings are projected on a screen, providing a rich overview of the artist’s work and a visual complement to the unfolding story.

Vincent opened in LA at the V.S. Theater in late 2012. The one-man show enjoyed three extensions, a 14-week sold-out run and excellent reviews. With the steadfast support of Nimoy, the play traveled to New York for a sold-out engagement at Symphony Space, followed by various regional engagements, including a sold-out run at the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA. In 2015, the show was embraced by French reviewers and audiences alike and was nominated for Best Actor and Best Author at the Petits Molières, the French Tony Awards for small theaters.

The 75-minute performance in French (with subtitles) with no intermission will start at 7:30 p.m. at Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students. Individual tickets are available at https://tinyurl.com/ofmdyxh. A no-host bar will be available.
