Pierrot Productions is excited to finally be able to present this passionate play written by Moises Kaufman, touching on one of classical music’s enduring riddles as to why Beethoven wrote 33 variations of a rather uninspired waltz. Two hundred years later, a modern-day music scholar is driven to solve the mystery even as her own health and relationship with her daughter crumbles.  The show simultaneously explores the composer’s creations and the struggle of the musicologist, enhanced by a live pianist playing the variations.
