Block Party : The Art Couple

Buy Tickets

In this absurdist comedy, playwright Neil Simon is desperately seeking inspiration. He finds it in the real-life odd couple story of Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin’s ill-fated co-habitation in the south of France. Filled with “gut-punching poignancy” (Stage Raw), this strikingly clever new play explores the lives and work of struggling artists before they become famous—or lose an ear. As Paul and Vincent argue about art and Neil wrestles with his narrative, The Art Couple offers a hilarious look at the world of art, the price of genius, and the difficulty of having a roommate.
