Leonard Nimoy's Vincent
June 3 & 4 @ 7:30pm
Jean-Michel Richaud stars in solo event.
The Next Arena and Mistral Productions present Leonard Nimoy’s Vincent, directed by Paul Stein, performed by Jean-Michel Richaud. 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.

North Coast Rep and Impro Theatre presents:
Tennessee Williams Unscripted
June 17 @ 7:30pm
Passionate, smoldering secrets lurk beneath the surface of genteel society only to explode in a climax of accusation, confession and consequence. Williams’ masterful storytelling and delicious language are Impro Theatre’s inspiration as it creates full-length plays that are hilarious, yet tragic as a Southern belle’s broken heart.
“GO. Tenderly comedic…savvy. Lingers somewhere between satire and homage. It’s a very smart choice.”
“Very funny…Charming…Remarkably smooth.” -Backstage West
