The event in question will be a benefit for Kaufman's company, Tectonic Theater Project. Past Tectonic shows include Gross Indecency and The Laramie Project.

33 is about the process behind Beethoven's composing of "The Diabelli Variations," which the classical composer wrote after he had gone deaf.
