    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.
