I am excited to announce a new contest for Film Misery readers to coincide with Hitchcock appreciation month. You can enter to win a pair of tickets to the Broadway play The 39 Steps, based on the 1935 Hitchcock film of the same name. The play was nominated for 6 Tony Awards in 2008 including Best Play and the winner of two and it has recently become Broadway’s longest running comedy.
Here is the information about the show from the One-Sheet:
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you haveâ€¦(mystery chords!) THE 39 STEPS, Broadwayâ€™s most intriguing, most thrilling, most riotous, most UNMISSABLE comedy smash!Â The mind-blowing cast of 4 plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure.
Seeking a frivolous night out at the theatre, Richard Hannay is lured into a world of intrigue by a mysterious woman claiming to be a spy. When she winds up dead in his flat, he flees London with the police hot on his trail.
THE 39 STEPS features a cast of four actors who, against all odds, breathlessly and hilariously attempt to reenact all of the characters, locations and famous scenes in Hitchcockâ€™s 1935 film thriller with just a few props and a lot of theatrical ingenuity and split second quick changes.
A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, THE 39 STEPS amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!

If you’re a Hitchcock fan you will love this show as it not only references several of his works, but it also pokes fun at the absurdity of some of the Master of Suspense’s scenarios.
