GMG fan Doug Brendel is performing in a knockout one-man show about Vincent Van Gogh — yeah, the artist who cut off his own ear! This full-length two-act play (actually written by Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek fame) is hilarious and heartbreaking — and it’s sold out for its first week. But a few tickets are still available for next Thursday-thru-Saturday, September 22-23-24. Performances begin at 7:30 pm at Time & Tide Fine Art, 4 Market St., Ipswich. Tickets in advance $15 at the gallery. Only 20 seats per show, so call 978 238 8848 to hold your tickets until you can get to downtown Ipswich to pick them up.
