Thursday, October 30, 2008
Rockford College’s Performing Arts Dept. presents “Inventing Van Gogh” Nov. 20-23 in the college’s Cheek Theatre. Performances are 8 p.m. Thurs. – Sat. and 2 p.m. Sunday.
Written by Steven Dietz, “Inventing Van Gogh” is a haunting and hallucinatory drama about the making of art. It is the story of the final Van Gogh self-portrait, painted just before the painter’s death which has never been seen, until now. In the play, Patrick Stone, a contemporary painter, is hired to finish the masterpiece and finds himself squaring off, across the years, with Van Gogh himself.
Admission is $10 for adults; $7 for students and seniors 55 and up. For tickets, call the Rockford College box office, 815-226-4100.
