33 Variations – a Wake Forest Theatre collaboration with Festival Stage of Winston-Salem

WFU-snow-sunriseThis is the time of the semester that I look towards some of wonderful events for the upcoming semester.  One event to which I’m particularly looking forward is 33 Variations, an M. Kaufman play being produced by through a collaboration between Wake Forest’s Theatre and Dance Department and Winston Salem Festival Stage.    The play is a psychological mystery based on a woman trying to understand Beethoven’s creative processes and why he needed all those variations!   In addition to five professional actors from around the country, the cast includes a current Wake Forest University student majoring in theatre and one graduate of the department. The artistic and production staff includes several members of the Wake Forest faculty.  Louis Goldstein, Professor of Music, is the onstage pianist in this amazing production.  Professor Goldstein will take students from his First Year Seminar to the play.  Students will also attend the lecture and will talk with key people associated with this wonderful interdisciplinary event.  A leading expert on Beethoven’s variations is also coming to WFU to interact with faculty and students. I think this is going to be one of the most interesting theatre events of the year–a fine collaboration between Wake Forest University and the Winston-Salem community that benefits faculty, staff and students, as well as the broader local community.  33 Variations runs from Feb. 1-24, a at Hanesbrands Theatre (209 N. Spruce Street, Winston-Salem.  (I already have my tickets!)
