Malibu Seen / By Kim Devore


She’s won not one but two Academy Awards and got America moving with her famous fitness videos. Even though she’s approaching retirement age, Jane Fonda shows no sign of slowing down. These days you’ll find her center stage at the Ahmanson Theater in a new production called “33 Variations.”

Jane plays a music scholar who is determined to solve the musical mystery of why Beethoven spent his last years feverishly writing 33 variations of what appeared to be a mediocre waltz.

The production transports the audience back and forth from present day New York to 19th century Austria.

Samantha Mathis, Don Amendolia, Susan Kellermann, Greg Keller, James Varjas, Diane Walsh, Scott Barrow, Caitlin O’Connell and Yvonne Woods Slaten round out the cast.

The production runs through Sunday.


Congrats to Malibu funnyman Adam Sandler whose name is now cemented in Hollywood history. “The Waterboy” star received the 2,431st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a special unveiling ceremony in front of the W Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard.

Family man Adam was joined by his wife Jackie, as well as two of his tiniest fans, daughters four-year old Sadie and two-year old Sunny. The actor started out in stand-up comedy and as a writer for “Saturday Night Live” before starring in romantic comedies like “The Wedding Singer” and “Grown Ups.” Adam’s latest flick is “Just Go With It,” playing opposite Jennifer Aniston. His many hits have reportedly grossed more than $3 billion worldwide. The actor was clearly thrilled with the recognition saying, “This is a big deal. I feel honored and I can’t believe this has happened in my life.”


Malibu’s Pierce Brosnan has worked tirelessly for a variety of causes from saving the world’s whales to crusading for the environment. But the acclaimed actor is also a talented artist and his latest creation will soon be on the move.

Pierce has designed a special new California license plate, which will be available through the Department of Motor Vehicles. It’s called the Pet Lovers Plate and is sponsored by the California Veterinary Medical Board. Pierce’s plate shows a colorful doggie chewing a bone with the slogan, “Spay and Neuter Saves Lives.”

It’s seen as a fun and easy way to help reduce pet overpopulation. Proceeds will provide free and low cost spay and neuter surgeries across California. The plates will also raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering. The goal is to help make sure that every dog and cat, puppy and kitten find a loving home.
