David Binder (A Raisin in the Sun) presents the Tectonic Theater Project's production of 33 VARIATIONS, starring Jane Fonda, Samantha Mathis, Colin Hanks, Zach Grenier, Don Amendolia, Susan Kellermann, Erik Steele and Diane Walsh. 33 VARIATIONS, written and directed by Moisés Kaufman opened last night, Monday, March 9th at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Broadway.

BroadwayWorld's cameras were there to celebrate the production and catch the starry crowd as they arrived to welcome Jane Fonda back to Broadway!

Jane Fonda heads a cast of eight in 33 VARIATIONS, a new American play written and directed by Moisés Kaufman, about Katherine Brandt (Jane Fonda) trying to solve a centuries-old mystery about the world's greatest composer. Katherine's obsession takes her from present-day New York to 19th century Austria. As the music that consumes Katherine comes to life on stage, she races against time to find common ground with her daughter and to embrace the legacy of her own life.

The design team includes Derek McLane (Sets), Janice Pytel (Costumes), David C. Woolard (Additional Costumes), David lander (Lights), André Pluess (Sound), Jeff Sugg (Projection Design), Charles LaPointe (Hair/Wig Design), Daniel Pelzig (Choreography) and Mark Bly (Dramaturg).
