The popular theatrical version of Alfred Hitchcock's masterful film ... proves that anything movies can do, theater can do more hilariously. ... the show whizzes by to the audience's audible delight."
- Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

“Once  this fun ride leaves the station, you don’t want to get off!”

- New  York Daily News

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have... (mystery chords!) Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39  Steps, Broadway’s most intriguing, most thrilling, most riotous, most unmissable comedy smash!

The  mind-blowing cast of 4 plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an  ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure.

American CinemathequeDirector Alfred Hitchcock (1899 – 1980) is widely regarded as the ultimate  master of suspense. He directed more than 50 films over the course of six decades,  and his command of both cinematic form and content, integrated into seamless  motion picture entertainment, is virtually unrivaled. While Hitchcock’s hugely  successful period of Technicolor spectaculars includes the classics VERTIGO,  REAR WINDOW, NORTH BY NORTHWEST and THE BIRDS, many of his best films  incorporate the elegant simplicity of black & white. From the early joys of THE 39 STEPS and THE LADY VANISHES, through taut mid-period  suspense thrillers such as SPELLBOUND, SHADOW OF A DOUBT and STRANGERS  ON A TRAIN, to the phenomenal success of the slasher classic PSYCHO,  the Hitch proves that monochrome is a magnificent thing.

The 39 StepsPlease join us for a retrospective of Hitchcock’s black & white films,  including screenings of REBECCA, LIFEBOAT, STAGE FRIGHT and SABOTEUR.
