Purple Rose Actors Read 
33 Variations by Moisés Kaufman



33 Variations
A mother coming to terms with her daughter. A composer coming to terms with his genius. And, even though they're separated by 200 years, these two people share an obsession that might, even just for a moment, make time stand still. 

Join Purple Rose Theatre Company (PRTC) actors as they read  
33 Variations by Moises Kaufman. Stay after the reading to share your thoughts on the script with PRTC Artistic Director, Guy Sanville and the performers. 

The plot moves between Ludwig van Beethoven composing his Diabelli Variations while gradually going deaf and a present-day musicologist studying that piece of music and battling ALS. The play studies parallels in the experiences of both characters in their own time periods.     


33 Variations was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play in 2009. Read more about 33 Variations here.
