33 Variations by Moises Kaufman
It is 1819: Beethoven is asked to write a variation on a waltz by Anton Diabelli. Beethoven is not interested. He becomes obsessed with this "cobbler's patch" and spends the next five years writing not one but 33 variations. Cut to 2007: Dr. Katherine Brandt has been diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Yet she is obsessed to uncover why Beethoven is obsessed with writing variations on a mundane waltz. Such are questions Kaufman boldly asks in his riveting, award-winning play.
