Though audiences of the Broadway play “33 Variations” will most likely be focused on the star, Jane Fonda, she won’t have the stage all to herself. The producers announced that the cast of the play, by Moisés Kaufman, would be rounded out by Samantha Mathis (of “Grey’s Anatomy,” not to mention “Pump Up the Volume”), above, and Colin Hanks (recently seen on “Mad Men”), as well as Zach Grenier, Don Amendolia, Susan Kellermann, Erik Steele and Diane Walsh. Ms. Fonda portrays a musicologist obsessed with the work of Beethoven in what will be her first appearance on Broadway in more than 45 years. The play is scheduled to begin previews at the Eugene O’Neill Theater on Feb. 9 and run March 9 through May 24.
