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.

Description

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.
