@ the stagedoor: JANE FONDA, star of 33 VARIATIONS

I made these images of JANE FONDA at the stagedoor of the EUGENE O'NEILL THEATRE where she signed autographs after a performance of 33 VARIATIONS. The new play by Moises Kaufman is now in previews. Born in New York City, Fonda is a writer, political activist, former fashion model, fitness guru, and a two-time Academy Award winning actress for her roles in "Klute" and "Coming Home." 33 Variations marks her first return to Broadway since the 1963 play "Strange Interlude."
Fonda also blogs about her Broadway experience. Launched in January, she shares behind-the-scenes glimpse of Broadway, along with a dash of politics and other topics. The link to her blog is at:
Jane Fonda returns to Broadway as a musicologist racing against time to unravel one of Beethoven's towering obsessions as well as her own legacy. In 1819, fledgling publisher Anton Diabelli commissioned 50 composers to write a variation on a waltz he had created. Beethoven rejected the invitation, dismissing Diabelli's waltz as ordinary. He then obsessively created 33 variations on Diabelli's theme. Why? Kaufman's play weaves Beethoven's artistic journey with that of Katherine, a musicologist deciphering clues left behind in Beethoven's notebooks and letters and wondering about her own obsession with genius.
