Photo Flash: 39 STEPS Company Takes Vintage Glamour Shots

39 STEPS is nearing the end of its critically-acclaimed run at the Union Square Theatre (100 East 17th Street), set to close on January 3, 2016. Below, check out glamour shots of the cast and crew in the style of 1930s Hollywood, shot by cast member Robert Petkoff.

Last year, Petkoff photographed the cast of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in vintage style. Check out those photos here.

39 STEPS features Broadway vet Robert Petkoff as the dashing hero Richard Hannay, Billy Carter as Clown #1, The Lion King alum Cameron Pow as Clown #2, and recent Juilliard grad Brittany Vicars as Pamela/Annabella/Margaret.

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 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 four "insanely talented" actors portraying more than 150 characters, sometimes changing roles in the blink of an eye. The brilliantly madcap story follows our dashing hero Richard 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.

Originally premiering in 2005 at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in England, 39 STEPS went on to wow London audiences in 2006 at the Tricycle Theatre before transferring to the West End's Criterion Theatre, where it recently ended its 9 year run on September 5, 2015. The production, and Patrick Barlow, went on to receive the 2007 Olivier Award for Best Comedy, and has since been seen across the globe, from Melbourne and Madrid to Tel Aviv, Seoul, Tokyo and Buenos Aires. In North America, it is one of the top ten licenses shows in regional theatres. It's original Tony Award-winning New York production ran 1,135 performances from 2008-2011.
