THE 39 STEPS welcomes comedians to talk back on Monday, May 24







Tony award-winning comedy currently playing at New World Stages.

“This delicious deconstruction of Hitchcock’s classic film has been happily re-incarnated Off Broadway.” – New York Times

“The new four person cast has enlivened the show with their own brand of zaniness.  Editor’s Pick!”  – New York Magazine

Alfred Hitchcock’s THE 39 STEPS announces comedians Adam & Todd Stone will return for a special talk back on Monday, May 24 following the performance. The Stone brothers lead a hilarious talk back on Broadway and The 39 Steps is pleased to welcome them to their new Off-Broadway home.

In addition, the Monday, June 7 talk back will be lead by Hitchcock enthusiast and blogger Adam Philips.
Additional guests for the Monday night talk backs will be announced soon.
Alfred Hitchcock’s THE 39 STEPS is currently playing at the New World Stages/ Stage 1 (340 West 50th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues).
Talk Back Bios:
The Stone twins, Adam and Todd, created their two man stand-up comedy act called “Stone and Stone” during their sophomore year at college, where they graduated in 2005.  Since then, they have been featured on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, where they made it to the semi-final round in Las Vegas, a national Verizon FiOS commercial, and most recently in a few AtomTV videos on Comedy Central, which they also wrote. The Stones have brought their show overseas to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and they perform at comedy clubs and theaters throughout New York City, including Comix, Carolines, Gotham Comedy Club, UCB Theatre, The PIT, and the New York Friars Club.
A lifelong film enthusiast, Adam Philips launched the website “Hitchcock and Me” in late 2009 with one simple goal: to watch and blog about the 52 movies directed by Alfred Hitchcock in one year. In April, Philips began the first-ever “39 Steps Fest” in conjunction with the off-Broadway production featuring over 150 characters played by a cast of four.  By day, Philips work at DC Comics. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, creativity coach Julia Roberts, and their three children.

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.
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 M. William Shiner.

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.  For a limited time, 39 tickets will be available at each performance for $39.
