Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have...(mystery chords!) THE 39 STEPS, Broadway's most intriguing, most thrilling, most riotous, most UNMISSABLE comedy smash! The mind-blowing cast of 4 plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. WINNER! 2 TONY AWARDS® ! HILARIOUS FUN FOR THEATRE-LOVERS OF ALL AGES!



In THE 39 STEPS, a comedic play based on Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1935 film, Richard Hannay is pursued by police and escapes to London after a woman is found dead in his flat. A once average and decent man, Hannay is followed as his entanglement with murder, double agents, and seductive women grows. A riveting and enrapturing sequence of scenes follow one after another, as suspense builds, complemented by slapstick humor and farcical dialogue. Requiring the utmost excellence in acting, the scarce scenery and minimal use of props only add to these comedic elements, as folding chairs are transformed into speeding cars and suitcases become the roof of a moving train!



Serving as a side-splitting spy thriller, the play makes references and uses musical excerpts from other Hitchcock films and invites audiences to view a new spin off of a famous work. Here’s the chance to see Broadway’s longest running comedy and a comical side of Hitchcock never seen before!

STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/15/15- THE 39 STEPSSTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/15/15- THE 39 STEPS
by Stage Tube - Jan 15, 2015

Today in 2008, The 39 Steps opend at the American Airlines Theatre, where it ran for 771 performances. The play is a farce adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. Patrick Barlow wrote the adaptation, based on the original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon of a two-actor version of the play. The play's concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four. One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. Thus the film's serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.
