Hitchcock meets hilarious in this fast-paced mystery/romantic comedy/adventure for everyone who loves the magic of theater. The Morgan-Wixson presents The 39 Steps, adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan and based on the Alfred Hitchcock movie. Aric Martin directs the film. The cast features Tristan Griffin, Genevieve Kennedy, Mikael Mattsson, and Christopher Tiernan.
This comical adaptation of The 39 Steps is a nonstop, hilariously irreverent re-creation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic mystery thriller film of 1935. Our leading man, Richard Hannay, meets a mysterious woman at a London music hall. After witnessing her murder, he becomes entangled in solving the crime, proving his innocence, and breaking up a spy ring that seems to be entangled in the whole affair.
You read that cast list correctly: the entire adventure is performed with only four actors. Christopher Tiernan plays the hero, Richard Hannay, and the others play the rest of the characters: over 150 good guys, bad guys, gentlemen, ladies, kids, and sometimes even non-human props. The show is a must-see for theater fans who love to laugh as well as Hitchcock fans as many of the classic films are referenced throughout the evening. The 39 Steps received the 2007 Olivier Award for “Best New Comedy” and the 2008 Drama Desk Award for “Unique Theatrical Experience.” The New York Post called it “the most entertaining show on Broadway.”
Cost: $23/adults, $20/students and seniors
