The 39 Steps: A Broadway Series Show

By: Michelle Saldivar

The 39 Steps is now showing through February 1.

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a high-energy whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! Adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock, the play’s concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four. One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. Thus the film’s serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.

Here are a few pics from Osceola Arts’ debut of The 39 Steps this past weekend. Only two more weekends to catch this hilarious Hitchcock who dun it! This week only, we will have a special Thursday showing at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available now online at http://www.osceolaarts.org/shows-and-events and at our box office.
