Byline: ANI

London, February 25 (ANI): The excitement about Actress Jane Fonda's Broadway return after a four decade-long hiatus was overshadowed by protests by Vietnam War veterans during the preview performance of her new play '33 Variations' at New York's Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Saturday.

The 71-year-old actress has returned to the stage after 45 years with this play.

According to the Daily Express, audience members found themselves fighting through demonstrators to get into the building at the preview performance.

A New York Post report says that war veterans were protesting against Fonda's 1972 visit to North Vietnam, where she straddled an anti-aircraft gun and gave her support to the enemy. (ANI)
