Artist, author, playwright and 2014 Forward Grand Prize Winner Terrence James Coffman brings his play, Van Gogh Live to the Charles Allis Art Museum during its Plein Air exhibition running through January 11. This one-night performance, based on Coffman’s fictional book of missing Van Gogh journals, is a riveting and emotional glimpse into the torment and ecstasy of Vincent’s life. The audience experiences the complicated life of this lonely man as Coffman examines his obsessions, madness, and love of art and humanity and is given the chance to question Van Gogh at the end of the evening. Watch to discover two local persons you might know filling the cameo roles of a minister and a French prostitute. Coffman’s book will be available for purchase with part of book sales going to support CAVT.
Admission is $25 in advance/$30 at the door. Call Ann at 414 278 8295 x5 or email RSVP@cavtmuseums.org.Read More
