The 39 Steps features "a cast of four actors who, against all odds, breathlessly and hilariously attempt to re-enact all of the characters, locations and famous scenes in Hitchcock's 1935 film thriller with just a few props and a lot of theatrical ingenuity and split second quick changes."
The production currently stars Arnie Burton (Man #2), Jeffrey Kuhn (Man #1), Sean Mahon (Richard Hannay) and Jill Paice (Annabella Schmidt/Pamela/Margaret). The company also includes Rob Breckenridge, Claire Brownell and Cameron Folmar.
Tickets are available (212) 239-6200, online at www.telecharge.com and at the Helen Hayes Theatre box office.
