Drama. Obsessed by a musical genius, Katherine is on a mission to unlock Beethoven’s strangest mystery: why can’t Ludwig stop generating complex variations on a simple waltz? On stage, present-day New York and nineteenth-century Austria co-exist, brilliantly bridged by memory, tenacity and live music. Both Katherine and Beethoven deny love and friendships as they strive for perfection; they might share just enough to make time (and our hearts) stand still. “…a convincing case for the genius of emotional variation in each of us, whether we’re Beethoven or not.” —Entertainment Weekly
Written by Moisés Kaufman; Directed by James Rocco.
Final performance of the run; sometimes this is a sell-out risk.
Organizer is ushering, so can meet afterward at Great Waters to discuss the play (Great Waters is in the corner of the same building as the theater.) Give me 15 minutes or so to get there, as I must finish my ushering duties and help tidy the theater. (That process will go more quickly if everyone takes their programs and cups with them to the lobby--thanks!)
