BWW TV: THE 39 STEPS Is Back in New York- Meet the New Cast!

The two-time Tony Award winning hilarious hit comedy 39 Steps is currently in previews with an opening night set for Monday, April 13th at the Union Square Theatre (100 East 17th Street). The cast of 39 Steps will feature original Broadway cast member Arnie Burton as Clown #2, as well as Billy Carter as Clown #1, Broadway vet Robert Petkoff as the dashing hero Richard Hannay, and Brittany Vicars as Pamela/Annabella/Margaret in her New York City stage debut. The company just met the press and below you can meet the new company!

Adapted by Tony nominated author Patrick Barlow from an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon, and based on the book by John Buchan and the classic 1935Alfred Hitchcock film, 39 Steps features Tony nominated direction by Maria Aitken, Tony winning lighting design byKevin Adams, Tony winning sound design by Mic Pool, and Tony nominated scenic and costume design by Peter McKintosh.

39 Steps is a comedic spoof of the classic 1935 film, with only 4 "insanely talented" actors portraying more than 150 characters, sometimes changing roles in the blink of an eye. The brilliantly madcap story follows our dashing heroRichard Hannay (Robert Petkoff) as he races to solve the mystery of The 39 Steps, all the while trying to clear his name. The show's uproarious fast-paced 100 minutes promises to leave you gasping for breath... in a good way! It's fun for everyone from 9 to 99.

39 Steps came to Broadway in January 2008 and ran over three years, playing a record-breaking 1,135 performance - the longest running play in 7 years. It received six 2008 Tony nominations, including Patrick Barlow for Best Play, winning two for Sound Design and Lighting Design, and three Drama Desk Nominations, winning two including Unique Theatrical Experience.
