A hilarious whodunit based on Alfred Hitchcock’s classic original film.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Director Maria Aitken makes do with minimal scenery and few props, propelling her actors with a fluidity that would make a choreographer proud.’’
‘‘The actors themselves seem to be having a helluva good time. As does the audience. In addition to providing the relief of being committedly silly, The 39 Steps stands out for its plying of minimal resources to maximal effect.’’
‘‘Suspense-meister Alfred Hitchcock probably never imagined his thriller The 39 Steps had the makings of a hilarious comedy, but the show ...is a dizzy delight.’’
‘‘The play's creators have affectionately pushed Hitchcock's brilliance - watch for various homages to such movies as The Birds and The Lady Vanishes - into some riotous realm of satire, without losing its essentially Hitchcockian flavor.’’
‘‘An impeccably crafted trifle, a lot tastier than many of the richer confections that have turned up in commercial theater lately.’’
