Kenmore West High School will present "33 Variations" at 7:30 p.m. May 25-27 in the school auditorium, 33 Highland Parkway.
"33 Variations," a play by Moises Kaufman, tells the story of two people 200 years apart - one a fatally ill Beethoven scholar coming to terms with her daughter, the other a composer coming to terms with his genius. One is in present-day New York, the other in nineteenth century Austria, but the two share an obsession that might, for a moment make time stand still.
The show is produced and directed by Philip A. Jarosz. Tickets are $8 presale and $9 at the door. Call the school at 874-8401 for more information.
"33 Variations" had its Broadway debut in 2009 starring Jane Fonda, and was nominated for five Tony Awards, including best play. It also won the 2007 Edgerton New American Play Award and the 2008 Harold and Mimi Steinberg American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award.
