This ingenious comic stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The 39 Steps turns a cast of four into more than 100 zany characters (in 100 minutes) with a mix of Hitchcockian masterpiece, juicy spy novel and a touch of Monty Python. The winner of two Tony and Drama Desk Awards, The 39 Steps is a fast-paced and funny whodunit that's brimming with action and romance. Accused of a murder he didn't commit, Richard Hannay flees from the authorities and encounters a string of hair-raising adventures -- as well as an unlikely love connection. Gasp and guffaw as four talented actors re-enact the entire film (including every train chase, plane crash and murder), gleefully portraying the many spies, villains and other intriguing characters that inhabit this action-packed world.

If you go to see this play, stick around as the theme building in the first half clarifies and intensifies after intermission. The acting is mostly quite good, small flaws by acting students don't mar the overall impact; the directing, costuming and stage settings very good, and Kushner's script incorporates interesting dramatic devices to bring home the universality of the choices we each must make in life when faced with dilemmas of personal responsibility. Go see this play.
