Directed by Spiro Veloudos, the limited engagement continues through Feb. 2, 2013.
Here's how Lyric Stage bills the work: "A mother coming to terms with her daughter. A composer coming to terms with his genius. Separated by 200 years, these two people share an obsession that transcends the boundaries of time. Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project, Gross Indecency) has written an extraordinary play about passion, parenthood, and the moments of beauty that can transform life."
