Jane Fonda is amazing in writer and director Moisés Kaufman's play 33 Variations.

After a successful run on Broadway, 33 Variations opened last night at L.A.'s Ahmanson Theatre. Fonda reprises her starring role as a musicologist battling ALS while trying to uncover Beethoven's motivation in creating his Diabello Variations.

Don't worry—you don't need to know much about classical music to enjoy the show. I certainly don't, but the story is fascinating, the acting is superb and the set is magical. Fonda, 73, is at the top of her game. It's no surprise she earned a Tony nomination for her work.

Last night's celeb-studded audience included Cher, Colin Farrell, Anjelica Huston, Benjamin McKenzie, Steve Bing, Rosanna Arquette and Fonda's brother Peter, her son Troy Garity along with her boyfriend, music producer Richard Perry.
