Jane Fonda Will Return to Broadway
Well-experienced actress, Jane Fonda, is tracking down her path to go back on Broadway stage after a four decades absent.
The Academy Award-winning actress will perform next year in 33 Variations, a play written and directed by Moises Kaufman. It tells a story about Beethoven’s fascination with a trivial waltz and the modern-day musicologist Katherine Brandt (Fonda) who sets out to discover the root of his obsession. On Monday, the producer David Binder announced that the production will open this winter at a theater and date to be determined.
70-year-old Fonda who is also an activist, shared some thoughts about her comeback in a statement, “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!” Well, it has a very long time indeed. Fonda made her Broadway debut in the 1960 play There Was a Little Girl, for which she earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured actress. Her last appearance on Broadway was in the 1963 drama Strange Interlude.
The actress has won two best actress Academy Awards; in 1979 for Coming Home and in 1972 for Klute. Her latest movies were as Jennifer Lopez’s mother-in-law in Monster-in-Law, and then she starred along Felicity Huffman and Lindsay Lohan in Georgia Rule. Looks like her comeback is not only on the big screen then. Sounds like a heart calling… welcome back, Jane!
