I have always loved and admired Jane. I am 46, so it has been my entire life's span since she appeared on Broadway. It sounds like a great play and a great cast. Her blog is terrific. Beaut interview.
Cheers,Karen from Downunder
I will be seeing Ms. Fonda in 33 Variations on April 14th. It is wonderful to be able to see the best actress of our time in a moving, intelligent play. I have followed Ms. Fonda's acting career for many years. Now that I am able to see her in the theater, I am full of joy and excitement.
It was great to hear Jane today (and she doesn't sound OVER 35) speaking to this wonderful play. I have two teen sons (17 &19) that are in bands whose girlfriends are always saying they want to see something on broadway... so, I've decided to get them, the girls, and a few of the other band-mates, tickets --- this is just wonderful.PS ignore the idiot comments below, it is just the way some are.
Wow so you could identify with Chrisitan Bale
I loved Henry Fonda in "My name is Nobody" Great spaggetti western.
I believe, GH  &  the director was the great John Ford. Also starred Cagney, William Powell -- all great, and a young Jack Lemmon.
What ever happened to your niece Bridget Fonda. She still is a major looker.
Thank you for having Jane Fonda on your show. I made sure I found a way to listen, today. I saw this play and was absolutely blown away. I have always admired Ms. Fonda and felt honored to sit in the theater and watch her work...and to see such a magnificent piece of art. The play is really moving and educational and fun and inspiring. I am an actor and felt a great surge of joy about theater being theater, being the shared experience, the inspiration, breathing in the world of the play with fellow audience members and the performers, technicians...etc. I also, fell in love with Beethoven. Ms Fonda is wonderful in her role and so worth seeing. Many congratulations to the playwright/director and all of the performers.
I forgot the movie is Mr. Rogers
I like the Henry Fonda story of how the Director of the Movie insisted on Henry Fonda being cast over Marlon Brando. The director felt that Henry Fonda was so good on the role on Broadway. But the studio heads thought he was passed his prime. Good thing the director got his way.
I would like to have dinner with Jane Fonda. We can sit down and discuss things over an appetizer of Goi Banh Cuon, and a main course of Tom Ram Man. We can enjoy it with a few glasses of Bia Hoi.
How come she has not followed the Hollywood trend of dating younger men? She seems to have aged very well, at least that is what it seemed from the Colbert Report.
Has she changed her mind on nuclear power?
