Award-Winning Show “Vincent” Comes to Walla Walla

Gesa Power House Theatre in Walla Walla will present the critically acclaimed show Vincent on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 29 and 30, at 7 p.m.

Vincent is a full-length drama by Leonard Nimoy of “Star Trek” fame, adapted from letters exchanged by Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo. In this incredible one-man show, Theo is portrayed by renowned actor Jean-Michel Richaud.

The play is set just after Vincent’s death, while rumors are flying in Paris questioning his talent, life and legacy. As Vincent’s confidante and lifelong supporter, Theo takes the stage in a rented lecture hall to set the record straight.

Vincent opened in Los Angeles in 2012, where it enjoyed a 14-week sold-out run. In 2015, the play had its French-language premiere in Paris, where it was nominated for Best Actor and Best Author awards at the Petits Molieres — the French equivalent of the Tony Awards for small theaters.

Throughout the play, more than a hundred of Van Gogh’s paintings are projected on a framed screen, providing a rich overview of the artist’s work and a visual complement to the story.

Reserved seating tickets start at $25 ($20 for students) and are available online at or by calling the box office at (509) 529-6500.
