Editorial Reviews

Leonard Nimoy stars in this critically lauded one-man performance that movingly reveals Vincent van Gogh as few knew him. Based on more than 500 letters exchanged between van Gogh and his brother Theo, the play examines the passion and torment of the extraordinary artist's life and death as seen through his brother's eyes. As van Gogh's paintings are projected in the background, Nimoy becomes both Theo van Gogh and Vincent in this compelling, touching portrayal that has thrilled theater-goers across the country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leonard Nimoy is wonderful in this one man play January 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mr. Nimoy did a wonderful thing when he brought this play to many cities around the USA. When it was released on DVD I had to have a copy for my own library. He entertains and educates in this one man play. I knew only that Vincent had been declared a mad man who cut off his ear, but this DVD help me see the tortured soul inside this great artist. He makes a lovely statement during his play about artists and how they are preceived by their fans and the ordinary people, it rings very true for our generation as well as would it have back in Vincent's day. Buy it you won't be sorry. I even purchased it for a friend who I knew would appreciate the wonderful performance given in this play. Enjoy! Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great production and great extras June 21, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a big fan of Leonard Nimoy for many years, and this wonderful DVD of his one-man play VINCENT has led me to admire him even more. Nimoy gives a very sincere and dramatic performance, and the story is true since it's all based on letters between Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo. The day after I watched the play, I ran it again but this time listening to the commentary track, and was again enthralled as Nimoy told fascinating background stories that showed his dedication to this project. For instance, he noted that many of Van Gogh's paintings have often been reproduced poorly in books, so Nimoy personally re-photographed many of them and offered his photos to museums and book publishers. This example illustrates Nimoy's passion about the art and life of Vincent Van Gogh that shines through in the play. Another bonus on the disc is an enjoyable slide show of Van Gogh's paintings and drawings. As you might guess, I highly recommend this DVD!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Leonard Nimoy's Vincent January 23, 2008
Format:DVD
I already owned a VHS copy of the production, however I decided to treat myself to a DVD version and I wasn't disappointed. Not only was the quality of the DVD better than the video, but, what a surprise to have the opportunity to listen to Leonard give a running commentary on the production, including lovely snippets such as the night the whole theatre was booked out by NBC and the problems of getting them away from the bar and foyer and into the theatre so that the production could actually start!!
Absolutely loved it - and very pleased that I decided to treat myself!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Teaching Tool August 25, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Very few movies or plays touch the viewer like this gem. Nimoy pours himself into the role of Theo van Gogh, the grieving brother of the misunderstood artist, and Theo pours out his heart and memories to an audience of Vincent's friends and critics. In this one-man show, a true work of art in itself, Nimoy tells Vincent's life story as only a brother could, while behind him on a screen Vincent's sketches and masterpieces are constantly projected. As with Nimoy's series "IN SEARCH OF..." and "ANCIENT MYSTERIES" this video is both educational and entertaining. I have shared it with both Art classes and Theatre Art classes, and the students remembered more about Van Gogh after one viewing of this video than a week's worth of textbook lectures. The Theatre Arts--once getting over the "SPOCK" issue--were captivated and learned from the actor's abilities. In my belief, this is one for the School Library as well as the home library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nimoy Dramatizes A Moving Tribute to Van Gogh December 6, 2007
Format:DVD
Wonderful. I've seen this production several times and Leonard Nimoy's live, one man dramatization recorded at the old Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis is by far the best. Outside of Van Gogh's painting, drawings and diaries themselves, this is my all time favorite tribute to Van Gogh. I am so glad it has been released recently on DVD to be enjoyed again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary but little known narrative on Van Gogh. December 31, 2003
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I had been looking for this tape for a number of years after first seeing it on one of the educational or arts channels. This is apparently NOT listed in [...], which is a great pity. We watched this again with several friends and were absolutely enthralled by Mr. Nimoy's presentation of Van Gogh's life, which he contextualized superbly. I highly recommend this video.

Error. Error. I discovered to my dismay that I had used the wrong scale on several items. I reviewed every purchase in about the last five years and discovered several comparable errors. The changes should be posted within 48 hours. Terribly embarrassed about these errors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leonard Nimoy in Vincent April 20, 2008
Format:DVD
I am American but live in the UK and this was unavailable here. Delivery from the states was excellent (less time than stated). I had watched this play many years ago and wanted to see it again. Leonard Nimoy is excellent in this one man show. I would recommend it to lovers of Van Goph, L.Nimoy, or just art appreciators.

5.0 out of 5 stars sheer-excellence February 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A most ingenious play that truly delivers the vibrantcy of Vincents "shooting-comet of a life". Leonard Nimoy is intimate, sincere and most convincing in his portrayal of "Theo". A must-see for all Van Gogh fans!
