Jane Fonda To Return To Broadway

Jane Fonda is headed back to Broadway 40 years after making her debut. She’ll star in 33 Variations by Moises Kaufman. Fonda made her Broadway debut in 1960 in a short-lived play There Was a Little Girl.

Later that year, she appeared in Arthur Laurents' comedy Invitation to a March. Fonda also starred on Broadway in the comedy The Fun Couple 1962, which closed after three performances, and a well-received revival of Eugene O'Neill's Strange Interlude in 1963.

In 33 Variations, Fonda will play musicologist studying Beethoven's fascination with a piece of music. She 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."
