Two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda will return to Broadway next
year in a new play penned by Moisés Kaufman.

Fonda will star in Kaufman's 33 Variations, which is scheduled to open
on Broadway in winter 2009. Playwright Kaufman will also direct.

David Binder (A Raisin in the Sun) will present the Tectonic Theatre
Project's production of 33 Variations. Additional casting, creative team
and a theatre will be announced at a later date.

In a statement Fonda said, "I am very excited about being in Moisés'
new play. I can't wait to get back on stage with him in this role that I
understand so well. It's been 40-some years!"

Kaufman added, "I am delighted to be working with one of America's
greatest actresses, a performer of such insight, intellect and heart.
For Tectonic Theater Project, this piece is the culmination of an
investigation into the creative life of Beethoven, and Ms. Fonda is the
perfect person to lead us on that journey."

33 Variations, according to press notes, "tells the story of Beethoven's
fascination with a trivial waltz, and the modern-day musicologist
Katherine Brandt (Jane Fonda) who sets out to discover the root of his
obsession. As Beethoven's indisputable genius and delightful humanity
come to life on the sheet music in front of her, Katherine not only
reveals the true nature of his gift, but also comes to embrace the
beauty and legacy of her own life." The production features an on-stage
pianist.

Jane Fonda was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in There
Was a Little Girl and was also seen on Broadway in Invitation to a
March, The Fun Couple and Strange Interlude.

She won Academy Awards for her performances in "Coming Home" and
"Klute." Fonda was also Oscar-nominated for her roles in "The Shoot
Horses, Don't They?," "Julia," "The China Syndrome," "On Golden Pond"
and "The Morning After."

Moisés Kaufman was nominated for a Tony Award for his direction of I
Am My Own Wife. 33 Variations will mark his Broadway debut as a
playwright. Kaufman's plays include the critically acclaimed Gross
Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde and The Laramie Project.

33 Variations was developed in association with Arena Stage and played
pre-Broadway tryouts at Arena Stage and the La Jolla Playhouse.

The economy is so bad that a lot of elderly citizens are returning to
work.

And reports are that 70 year-old Oscar winner Jane Fonda will be
returning to Broadway after 46 years.

Fonda is set to perform in 33 Variations next year.

The play was written and will be directed by Moises Kaufman.

33 Variations is the story of "Beethoven's fascination with a trivial
waltz and the modern-day musicologist Katherine Brandt (Fonda) who
sets out to discover the root of his obsession."

Oh, sounds like a winner!

And in a recent statement, Fonda says "I am very excited about being
in Moises' new play. I can't wait to get back on stage with him in
this role that I understand so well. It's been 40-some years!"

Fonda made her Broadway debut back in 1960 and was last on stage back
in 1963.

Let's see if this one doesn't suck!

And hopefully Fonda doesn't slip up this time and say the word "cunt"
on stage.
