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
- 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.
• NY Times from Sketch to StageSet and costume designer Peter McKintosh talks about his approach to the design for Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps.
• "Good Morning America" went backstage at Broadway’s The 39 Steps. GMA correspondent Taryn Winter Brill took a look at the hit quick-change comedy version of the 1935 Hitchcock film classic, interviewing the original Broadway cast members Arnie Burton, Jennifer Ferrin, Sam Robards and Cliff Saunders and showing some of the organized chaos backstage during the running of a typical performance.
• Monochrome mind-bogglers: Alfred Hitchcock’s black & white filmsMay 7 - 13, 2010, at the Aero Theatre
Director 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.
Please join us for a retrospective of Hitchcock’s black & white films, including screenings of REBECCA, LIFEBOAT, STAGE FRIGHT and SABOTEUR.
