BWW Reviews: Zach Theatre's 33 VARIATIONS is a Masterpiece
With its fantastic script, brilliant direction, and flawless performances 33 Variations is an incredible piece of theater the likes of which are rare. This is one orchestra that hits all the right notes.
Before I end this review, I have to mention my good friend Megan Mishork whose life was claimed by ALS on July 17, 2011 at the age of 27. She was one of the funniest and most courageous women I know, and I feel that 33 Variations is a fitting tribute to Megan and all other people who have perished from ALS. This disease may limit their movement and rob them of their voice, but they are still heard nonetheless.
Due to language and nudity, 33 VARIATIONS is recommended for mature audiences only. Running time: Approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes including one 20 minute intermission.
33 VARIATIONS plays The Topfer Theatre at 202 S. Lamar, Austin, TX now thru February 17th. Performances are Wednesdays thru Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2:30pm. Tickets are $25-$65. For tickets and information, visit www.zachtheatre.org.
