“80 million bid, 81, 82 Million dollars! Sir?, I shall then sell it at 82million dollars. Thank you, sir.”

Towards the end of his short life, Vincent Van Gogh, who suffered from mental illness, was treated by Doctor Paul Gachet. Vincent writes to his brother Theo: “A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke.” The 37-year-old painter died of a self-inflicted wound in 1890.

On 15 May 1990, The Portrait of Doctor Gachet was sold, within three minutes, for 82 million dollars.

“The true essence of cabaret-style theatre leaves you wanting more and more as the show goes on.” – Devon Koen, THE HERALD

“The show was a wow. People sat there afterwards in a kind of trance-like state”. – Robyn Cohen, THE CAPE ROBYN

** “Vincent has the heart and soul of a West-End spectacular” – TheWeeReview, UK

*** “His performance was flawless and his ability to bring the sad tale to life with compassion and warmth has left a lasting impression” – TheatreAndArts, UK
