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."
