‘Vincent’ back by popular demand

January 7, 2015

Back by popular demand, the one-man play, “Vincent,” returns to the Edison Theatre in Mammoth Lakes for two nights only, Jan. 16 and 17.
Last staged in Mammoth last January, the story takes place a few days after the death of little known painter Vincent Van Gogh.
“Vincent” is written by Leonard Nimoy and stars French-born Jean-Michel Richaud.
When the story picks up, rumors are flying around Paris about the little known painter – some say Van Gogh was a penniless madman, a frequenter of prostitutes, a derelict and soon to be forgotten artist of trifling quality.

‘Neighbors’ (R)

Starring: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne
Although “Neighbors,” at face value, has all the charms of any Seth Rogen movie (drug humor, outrageous sexual situations and more drug humor) the first thing I noticed about this film was its heart and how real each character felt.
