I wore flats. There's always so much walking to the Music Center venues from just parking structure alone. I highly recommend wearing either flats or kitty heels..

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.

Quotes & Highlights

“Jane Fonda is elegant, heartbreaking, and fierce.” —Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Not to be missed." —New York Magazine
Read Jane Fonda’s blog about the production.


A Beethoven scholar is driven to solve the genius’ greatest mystery while her own life rumbles around her: all gracefully underscored by  live pianist Diane Walsh sharing the stage. In a journey that spans 200 years, _33 Variations _is a sublime waltz between past and present, fact and speculation, art and life, mother and daughter.

Two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda heads a cast of eight in the new American play written and directed by Moisés Kaufman (author of _The Laramie Project _and director of _I Am My Own  Wife _and Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo). The 2009 Broadway run of 33 Variations was nominated for a total of five Tony Awards, including a nomination for Zach Grenier. The Tectonic Theater Project production of 33 Variations is produced by special arrangement with David Binder.
