About 39 Steps
4 actors, 150 characters. No, that’s not a bizarre riddle. It’s the premise upon which the show 39 Steps is built.
Adapted from the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name, the story centers around a man trying to both solve a mystery and clear his name. The show is fast and fun. Are the actors going to be able to change in time? There is as much drama in the premise as there is in the actual story and that’s what makes this a fun one to go see.
Why it’s Worth Seeing
39 Steps is dizzyingly fun. You will enjoy trying to keep up with the character changes and be amazed that there are only 4 actors in the entire play.
This show has been called “the most entertaining show on Broadway” by the New York Post and has won numerous awards including the Tony Award, the Olivier Award and many others. It’s a showcase of talent like none other. 39 Steps is one of the most unique theatrical experiences around. You will find yourself caught up in the excitement and story. You can see the show at the Union Square Theatre in New York City.
