A TALE OF OBSESSION AND DYING IN '33 VARIATIONS'
The 5 & Dime Theatre Company and director Lee Hamby produce the play, written by Moisés Kaufman
In a parallel tale of obsession and dying, 33 Variations focuses on one woman’s journey to understand the motivation of one of Beethoven’s last works. Musicologist Katherine Brandt (played by Sinda Nichols), diagnosed with ALS, is trying to make sense of Beethoven’s strange compulsion to put aside other pieces, with failing health and hearing loss, to write 33 separate variations of an Anton Diabelli waltz. The 5 & Dime Theatre Company and director Lee Hamby produce the play, written by Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project). 6 p.m. dinner (7:30 p.m. show) July 25 and 26; 12:30 p.m. brunch (2 p.m. show) July 27 at The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Riverside, $37 with dinner, $15 show only (in advance).
