Beethoven Back in Germany
the Beethoven Ninth film that I co-produced, directed by Kerry Candaele, will finally be opening in his native Germany this week--Sept. 21 in (Eastern) Berlin and Sept. 22 in Munich. What are the odds of this: the Berlin theater, the Babylon, is one block from where my daughter, hubby and son now live. We visited this past spring. It's just north of Alexanderplatz. If you can't make it, consider the Beethoven book I wrote with Kerry. Oddly, Beethoven did not seem to have a major presence in Berlin, beyond the famous monument (my photo above). On the other hand, there is a Ramones museum.
