Ludwig and the Hammerklavier
Boondogglers Theater Co.
Playwright: James W. Jordan
1818! Join the cranky-but-friendly, idealistic-but- ... tired? ... Beethoven in his flat for drinks, a chat, and some piano. In a “raptus,” he takes measure of his life by scribbling measures for a new sonata, the Hammerklavier—a work (celebrating its bicentennial) that pulls him from a rut and heralds his “Late Period” (and his final years...).
This is a world premiere of the first act. The second act of the complete show is the full piano performance of the Hammerklavier. This full production is coming in 2020.
