The Thirty-Nine Steps Summary

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have...(mystery chords!) 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.

39 Steps, 2 Actors, Countless Roles (New York Times)
Will the thugs harm the old couple? Will the McGarrigles reveal the whereabouts of our hero and heroine? And how on earth will all four roles be played by just two actors?

From Sketch to Stage (New York Times)
A look at The 39 Steps with the show's set designer Peter McKintosh

Novel to Screen to Stage: Evolving Step by Step (New York Times)
In London the award-winning theatrical comedy is billed as John Buchan's The 39 Steps. But on Broadway, where the British import opened this month, it is called Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps.
