As performed by French-born actor Jean-Michel Richaud, this insightful and often moving 1981 solo show penned by Leonard Nimoy transcends the usual clichés surrounding the high-maintenance artist with the tortured relationship to his aural appendage.

Still, it takes an actor and director to fully create Theo and his memories of Vincent. Paul Stein directs, Jean-Michel Richaud performs, and the effect transports the audience to 1890s Paris.

In short, it is a splendid production.

In the end, Theo’s impassioned conclusion is that Vincent was a noble soul who fervently believed in the nobility and transcendence of art, while disdaining the crass commercialism associated with artistic success. That uncompromising attitude describes Richaud’s performance as well and makes Vincent a worthwhile evening at the theater.
