    Van Gogh's life is narrated through his letters to his brother and through his brother's memories. The excitement and color of Van Gogh's life and art enhance this production through the projection of images that are easily handled and carefully cued to add impact to the words. The total effect is dazzling, yet this remains an especially easy show to present, provided you have a capable actor for the single role.

    These monologues offer a wonderful variety. A frantic mother is trying to help her son with his complex math homework or explain to him about the facts of life. A cruel old woman is sitting in a rocking chair on a summer resort porch casually dominating other people's lives for her own convenience. A young woman is trying to deal with an idiot beauty salon, and we listen to the train of thought as another woman sits alone at a concert. There's a startling array of quick portraits of American women visiting Paris and many, many more. Learn More

    Mary Todd Lincoln is an enigma to most people. Her awareness of the political pulse of this country was instrumental in the election of her husband as president.

She was an emancipated woman long before her husband began the emancipation of another minority.

For all her faults, Mary Todd Lincoln was in many was the first first lady, a woman who insisted that her voice be heard. Learn More
