PHOENIXVILLE – Theater lovers will experience a process of inspiration and obsession with “33 Variations”, which will open on April 15 at the Forge Theater, 241 1st Ave.

The play simultaneously examines the creative process underlying Beethoven’s dialogues and the journey of musicologist Dr. Catherine Brandt as she seeks to discover the reason why Beethoven was forced to write 33 different variations on a simple theme by a small music publisher. The action takes place both in Beethoven’s time and in the present, switching between them and overlapping at certain key moments to emphasize the parallels between the exploits and experiences of both sets of characters.

Originally expected to open in the spring of 2020, but discontinued due to a pandemic, the show is an intimate exploration of relationships, love, loss and inspiration.

Director Suki, Madame Director, along with a stellar cast, “33 Variations” will be shown on 15-16, 22-23, 29-30 April at 20:00 and 24 April and 1 May at 14:00.
