About This Show

The Hunchback Variations dramatizes a hilarious and melancholy panel discussion between Quasimodo, hunchback of Notre Dame, and Ludwig van Beethoven, composer, on their attempt to create a mysterious sound effect called for in Anton Chekov’s The Cherry Orchard. Playing out over eleven musical scenes, or "variations," the story details the duo’s collaboration — one doomed by their deafness, unpleasant working conditions, and the fact that Beethoven has not fully committed to the process.

This funny, moving, and sometimes frustrating work cleverly explores one of Anton Chekhov’s great stage directions.
