Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps
October 20 -- November 7
Adapted by Patrick Barlow
Directed by Peter Amster
Press quote: "Absurdly enjoyable! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock's film is fast and frothy, performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands." -- The New York Times
Blurb: Gunshots, murder, and dastardly plots; seductive spies, thrilling chases and serious flirtation; they're all part of this rollicking comedy/mystery and Broadway hit. Based on the 1935 classic film by Alfred Hitchcock, The 39 Steps follows Richard Hannay as he sets out for a night of music hall entertainment only to be ensnared in a dangerous attempt to smuggle top-secret information out of the country. Four actors and ingenious and inventive staging prove that anything movies can do, theatre can do more hilariously.
