MICHAEL ORLANDI certified reviewer June 02, 2018
Beautiful play! Schuyler's written a play with well-fleshed out characters and its story resonates with artists and fans of art alike. This spoke to the resiliency that artists must keep and how a work-life balance is not always easy. I was also touched by what the play was saying about mental health, how important it is to have compassion and a support network. ... full review

When I first read the description of this play, being a fine art major I thought I knew the general story of Vincent Van Gogh. Even non-artists have heard of the tortured artist who cut off his ear and gave it to his girlfriend. So going into the theater I felt I had some prior knowledge of this story. Well, I was completely wrong. The experience I had was as if I were back in time in the room where the story unfolded. I felt as a child experiencing this story jump out of history and into my soul.

I could relate even now at this point in time to loving someone... full review

Loved it! Full disclosure: my dear friend wrote and starred in the play. So I went entirely to support my friend. That being said, it honestly was such an incredible production. I love how so much story and emotion was packed into a small place. One room, four props, five actors (with one actor on stage the ENTIRE time). It was fun, engaging, extremely emotional. And it was such an interesting look into a very misunderstood man (Vincent Van Gogh). ... full review

A very engaging play, with an accurate portrayal of what an artist of Van Goh's caliber would be like with bi-polar. Your attention was held fast and a wide range of emotions explored as you experienced what it was like to be in his shoes, as well as those effected by him.... full review
