Tectonic Theater Project will host a benefit performance and post-performance reception honoring the Broadway premiere of Moisés Kaufman's 33 Variations, on Thursday, February 26, at the Eugene O'Neill Theater. A post-play reception will follow, hosted by Morgans Hotel Group at Royalton (44 West 44th Street), and catered by Valrhona Chocolates.

The show tells the story of Katherine Brandt, who tries to solve a centuries-old mystery about the world's greatest composer. Katherine's obsession takes her from present-day New York to 19th century Austria. As the music that consumes Katherine comes to life on stage, she races against time to find common ground with her daughter and to embrace the legacy of her own life.

The show's cast includes Don Amendolia (Anton Diabelli), Zach Grenier (Beethoven), Colin Hanks (Mike Clark), Susan Kellermann (Dr. Gertie Ladenburger), Samantha Mathis (Clara Brandt), Erik Steele (Anton Schindler), and Diane Walsh (pianist). The design team will include Derek McLane (sets), Janice Pytel and David C. Woolard (costumes), David Lander (lighting), André Pluess (sound), Jeff Sugg (projections), and Daniel Pelzig (choreography).
