Vincent van Gogh's final self-portrait, painted right before he died, has never been seen before now. At least, that's the premise of Inventing Van Gogh, the latest production from Jobsite Theater. The drama tells the story of contemporary painter Patrick Stone and his dealings with van Gogh, a story set in the converging universes of a modern-day art studio and 19th century France. The play, directed by Karla Hartley and starring Steve Fisher and Jordan Foote, opens Friday and runs through Aug. 3 in the Shimberg Playhouse at the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, 1010 N MacInnes Place, Tampa. $28. (813) 229-7827. strazcenter.org.
