"Vietnam...through my lens" follows Stu Richel's journey as a combat journalist and photographer to, through and beyond his military service in Vietnam. This is a soldier's story, told by an awfully good storyteller. It is written and performed by Vietnam veteran and seasoned actor Stu Richel. His command of the stage and the English language captivates the audience in a manner similar to Mark Twain. Stu's on-stage performance was meticulously choreographed for the camera and artistically interwoven with his own war photography and that of some of his contemporaries. No blood and guts. No political statements that try to tell you why America's involvement over there was right or wrong. Just one guy's intensely personal perspective on the most significant period in his life.
