Photo Coverage: Dolly Parton Visits Jane Fonda Backstage at 33 VARIATIONS

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 welcome Jane Fonda back to Broadway! And speaking of "Welcoming to Broadway", former 9 To 5 big screen co-stars Fonda and Dolly Parton had a backstage reunion after last nights opening. Parton will soon call Broadway "home" as her musical adaptation of 9 To 5 hit the Great White Way at the Marriott Marquis Theatre. 9 To 5: The Musical begins previews on Broadway Tuesday, April 7, 2009, and opens Thursday, April 30, 2009.

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).
