    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.

    Larger than life (literally and metaphorically), American culinary icon James Beard was a complex, entertaining, beloved and frustrating friend and mentor to many. Openly gay even though his primary audience was middle-America housewives, Beard always kept his phone number listed and famously took calls from anyone who needed a little cooking advice. I Love to Eat invites you to meet “the face and belly of American gastronomy” in this solo play that imagines a late night in Beard’s home. Learn More
