STAGE TUBE: 33 VARIATIONS Celebrates Opening Night in LA!

February 9th marked the opening night for the five-time Tony nominated production of "33 Variations" with Jane Fonda at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre. "33 Variations," written and directed by Moisés Kaufman, continues through March 6, 2011.

Fonda, who is a two-time Academy Award-winner, was nominated for the Tony Award for her role in the 2009 Broadway run of "33 Variations." The Tectonic Theater Project production was also nominated for a Tony, as was Zach Grenier (who also reprises his role at the Ahmanson) for his portrayal of Beethoven, and Derek McLane for scenic design and David Lander for lighting.

Fonda and Grenier are joined by Samantha Mathis, Don Amendolia, Susan Kellermann, Greg Keller, Grant James Varjas, Diane Walsh, Scott Barrow, Caitlin O'Connell and Yvonne Woods Slaten. Additional design credits for "33 Variations" include costumes by Janice Pytel, sound by André J. Pluess and projection design is by Jeff Sugg.
