RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

The author starred in London and New York in this comedy about an acidic music critic who is writing a book about what Beethoven's tenth symphony might have been like. Ludvig himself appears and wanders around the living room muttering in German until the critic gets a hearing aid. Luckily, Beethoven has learned English in Heaven, so he can engage in witty banter with the critic. Also on hand are the critic's son, an aspiring composer whose work his father detests (as does Beethoven after perusing his scores), and the critic's wife, formerly an opera singer who desperately wants to sing a lieder accompanied by the composer! Before Beethoven returns to the Great Beyond he reveals who the mysterious great love of his life was.
