Purple Rose Actors Read "33 Variations" by Moisés Kaufman via Chelsea District #Library #michigan #michlit
Purple Rose Actors Read 33 Variations by Moisés Kaufman
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.
