Iain is at it again! The pint-sized theatre critic just visited the two-time Tony Award winning hilarious hit comedy 39 Steps, currently playing at the Union Square Theater (100 East 17th Street), to weigh in on the play. Check out what he thought below!

Adapted by Tony nominated author Patrick Barlow from an original concept by Simon Corble andNobby Dimon, and based on the book by John Buchan and the classic 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film, 39 Steps features Tony nominated direction by Maria Aitken, Tony winning lighting design by Kevin 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.
