Would give 10 stars if I could! Loved the play - loved the cast and Jane Fonda is only getting better with age! Her father would be proud!!!

It's quite an experience when you are watch an actor in full command of her performance. That is Jane Fonda. Brilliant and breathtaking!

Very intelligent, well written and staged. The juxtaposition of the musicologist's with Beethoven's lives was so interesting and creative. Jane Fonda was fabulous as were the other actors.

The most beautiful thing I have ever seen or heard live! Jane Fonda, Zach Grenier, Greg Keller, Grant James Vargas, everything about the whole damn thing took my breath away! We gave a roaring standing ovation, and I was too busy clapping to wipe...continued

Magnificent play -- poignant, humorous, philosophical!! Jane Fonda and the entire cast are brilliant. Jane's attention to the most minute detail with her character made her so real. Her movement, posture and vocalization truly creates the...continued

Extremely powerful and poignant drama. Jane Fonda is mesmerizing and capable of commanding your attention with incredible nuance and poise. Kaufman's play had me thinking about music, family, career and mortality. So many issues presented...continued

The play itself is uneven. Moments of genius mixed with weird and choppy transitions. Some of the comic moments are forced, while others are truly funny. But the main reasons to see 33 Variations are the stellar performances of Jane Fonda and Zack...continued

A very thought-provoking and surprisingly moving play. Jane Fonda's distinctive voice sounds wonderful in a theater. She creates a nuanced character - intelligent, brittle, imperious with flashes of vulnerability. Zach Grenier's Beethoven was...continued

One of those rare occasions when actor and material are in perfect sync. And what makes it even more rare is that the entire cast, every performance was pitch perfect. The staging and music were the icing on one sumptuous cake. Get over whatever...continued

Easily the best show in town. Jane Fonda gives a magnificent performance, and the rest of the cast (almost all of whom did the show on Broadway) are equally great. This is a moving and powerful evening of theater.

More than equals the Broadway production, and Fonda is better than ever at the Ahmanson! Kaufman's script is wonderful, and the cast is too.
