BWW Review: Silliness is Raised to Absurd in Hanover Tavern's Hysterical 39 STEPS BWW Review: Silliness is Raised to Absurd in Hanover Tavern's Hysterical 39 STEPS
by Jeremy Bustin - Mar 13, 2020

Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1935 film, 'The 39 Steps' is a typical Hitchcockian concoction of action, suspense and surprising twists, topped off with a bit of humor for good measure. Patrick Barlow's amusing adaptation ups the ante on the comedy and adds a bit of absurdity (and dozens of recognizable Hitchcockian references) to this award-winning farce, based on both the film and the 1915 John Buchanan novel. Thanks to a superb cast and crew, Richmond audiences can now experience one of the silliest and most entertaining plays at Virginia Repertory Theatre's Hanover Tavern through March 29. (more...)
