AM NEW YORK: “This show simply refuses to quit, and so much the better… In such an intimate setting, this comedic thriller is even more direct and involving than ever before.

Alfred Hitchcock’s THE 39 STEPS is currently playing at New World Stages/ Stage 1 (340 West 50th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues).
Adapted by Patrick Barlow and directed by Maria Aitken, THE 39 STEPS is based on an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon and on the book by John Buchan.  

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 Hitchcock’s 1935 film thriller with just a few props and a lot of theatrical ingenuity and split second quick changes.   
The cast features John Behlmann as Richard Hannay, Cameron Folmar as Man #2, Jamie Jackson as Man #1 and Kate MacCluggage as Annabella Schmidt/Pamela/Margaret.  The production also features Greg Jackson and Jane Pfitsh.
The move to New World Stages marks the fourth New York home for the peripatetic Tony Award-winning comedy.  The production originally began performances on January 4, 2008 and opened January 15, 2008 at Roundabout Theatre Company’s American Airlines Theatre.  The production then moved to the Cort Theatre and Helen Hayes Theatre, playing for over two years and 771 laugh-filled performances, the longest run of any Broadway play in seven years.    

Set and costume design is by Peter McKintosh, lighting design is by Kevin Adams and sound design is by Mic Pool.  Original movement was created by Toby Sedgwick.  Additional movement is created by Christopher Bayes.  Production stage manager is Nevin Hedley.  
Tickets ($89.50 – 69.50) are available through Telecharge at 212-239-6200 or online at www.telecharge.com.  Student rush is available for $27.50.   All prices include a $1.50 facility fee.  Performances are Monday, Wednesday – Friday at 8:00 PM, Saturday at 3:00 and 8:00 PM, Sunday at 3:00 and 7:00 PM.  
THE 39 STEPS is produced by Bob Boyett, Harriet Newman Leve, Richard Winkler/Dan Frishwasser, Pamela Laudenslager/Douglas Denoff, Jane Dubin, Olympus Theatricals, Tim Levy/Jennifer Isaacson, Manocherian Productions, Stewart F. Lane/Bonnie Comley, Remmel T. Dickinson, True Love Productions, Kevin Lyle, John Retsios, Marek J. Cantor/Probo Productions, Lary Brandt/Meredith Lucio, in association with Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director; Harold Wolpert, Managing Director; Julia Levy, Executive Director), Huntington Theatre Company (Peter DuBois, Artistic Director; Michael Maso, Managing Director) and Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Ltd.
