Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with The 39 Steps at City Theatre. The Broadway production of the smash comedy-thriller has won two Tony Awards, the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Event, and the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
Adapted by Patrick Barlow from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 suspense-fest and the John Buchan novel that inspired it, The 39 Steps more or less follows the plot while spicing it up with exuberant energy and frequent detours into loopy Monty Python-esque territory. As more than 150 characters chase, murder, romance, double-cross, double-chase, triple-cross, and quadruple-murder one another, audiences will be amazed to realize that they’re all played by the same actors. Sam Redford spends most of his time playing Richard Hannay, an innocent lad who unwittingly finds himself mired in a conspiracy of assassins, state secrets, and sinister secret societies. Rebecca Harris plays the spy who loves him while also portraying pretty much everyone else who isn’t a man. And Tom Beckett and Evan Zes shine as Man No. 1 and Man No. 2, respectively.
Because the Master of Suspense’s film springs from a simpler time before sex, human blood, and the letter F were invented, audiences of almost any age will be able to appreciate the fast, frothy frippery of The 39 Steps.
