Cleveland Play House: Beethoven as I knew Him

I forced myself off the fence to see Friday evening's performance of Beethoven as I Knew Him at the Cleveland Playhouse. The play itself was informative and illuminating if not always entertaining or crystal clear. It is clear, though, in the post-performance Q&A that Harvey Felder knows his Beethoven -- this alone makes the performance worth attending.

I was unexpectedly moved by the ending comments about Beethoven's skull and couldn't help but to hope that the comment like the music "all of his relatinships with women were in his head" won't ring true.
