Vietnam...through my lens

“Vietnam…through my lens”, written and performed by Stu Richel with photos from his tour in Vietnam. Is a soldier’s reflective journey as a combat photographer through Vietnam and beyond. Presented Off-Broadway at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre (312 West 36th Street) in Manhattan. This critically acclaimed production is now coming to the Center for the Arts at Kayenta

This play is not a war story of blood and guts, it’s not a political statement. Vietnam…through my lens is one soldier’s intimately personal and unique tale about friendships, trust, and tenacity that travels from the jungles of South East Asia to the “jungle” of Manhattan, highlighted with photographs and video montages, most from Mr. Richel’s tour in Vietnam.

“Complemented by Richel’s own photographs of the era, his lens puts a face on the American soldier, while showcasing his skill in character acting.” – Deborah Greenhut, Playwright, Princeton Research Forum

Stu Richel has written and performed in many other solo shows; one “Mortal Decisions, a Diary of the Donner Party” (was called “a true work of sublime genius,” by the NY Observer). His other plays include “The Same Cloud” and “The Bugs Don’t Call Me Nigger” Mr. Richel has had principal roles in more than 17 feature films, and dozens of Regional, Off Broadway and other shows in New York City. Stu served from 1968 to 1970. In 1969, he was a combat correspondent with the 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam.
