Photo Coverage: 33 VARIATIONS' Fonda & Kaufman Guest at NYT Times Talk

Jane Fonda and Moises Kaufman, the star and writer-director of the upcoming Broadway play 33 VARIATIONS, participated in a New York Times "Times Talk" on Monday, February 23 at the TimesCenter (242 West 41st Street). Moderated by Times reporter Patrick Healy the event was a candid night of creative discussion, BroadwayWorld's cameras were there to capture the evening.

Performances began on Monday, February 9th, 2009 at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre (230 West 49th Street). The official opening will be Monday, March 9th, 2009. The engagement will play through May 24th, 2009.

The play marks Fonda's first time on Broadway in 46 years.

Kaufman is both the author and director of 33 VARIATIONS.This production will mark his Broadway debut as a playwright.

David Binder (A Raisin in the Sun) presents the Tectonic Theatre Project's production of 33 VARIATIONS. Tectonic Theater Project is the award winning non-profit theater company behind such plays as The Laramie Project and Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde, as well as nationally recognized arts education programs in high schools and universities around the country.

33 VARIATIONS tells the story of Beethoven's fascination with a trivial waltz, and the modern-day musicologist Katherine Brandt (Jane Fonda) who sets out to discover the root of his obsession. As Beethoven's indisputable genius and delightful humanity come to life on the sheet music in front of her, Katherine not only reveals the true nature of his gift, but also comes to embrace the beauty and legacy of her own life. Featuring an on-stage pianist, 33 Variations is a feast for the senses and the spirit.

33 Variations was developed in association with Arena Stage and played pre-Broadway tryouts at Arena Stage and the La Jolla Playhouse.
