The 39 Steps (Off-Broadway)
"39 Steps" is the two-time Tony Award-winning hit comedy.
In New York, it ran on Broadway from January 15 2008 through January 10, 2010, and then transferred to New World Stages where it ran from April 15, 2010 to January 16, 2011. The show played total of 1135 performances in its FIRST New York run.
The show resumed performances April 1, 2015 at the beautiful and historic Union Square Theatre, 100 East 17th Street, New York, NY 10003..."Just 39 Steps East of Broadway" and ended there on January 3, 2016 - a total of 317 performances.
"39 Steps is a comedic spoof of the classic 1935 film, with only 4 actors portraying more than 150 characters, sometimes changing roles in the blink of an eye. The brilliantly madcap story follows our dashing hero Richard Hannay as he races to solve the mystery of The 39 Steps, all the while trying to clear his name! The show's uproarious fast-paced 100 minutes promises to leave you gasping for breath... in a good way!"
It's great fun for everyone from 9 to 99.
Ben Brantley of the New York Times calls it "Absurdly Enjoyable" and "This century's most tireless and high-profile example of 'the little show that could.' The Daily News says it's "A Dizzy Delight!" Liz Smith calls it "The Most Entertaining Show on Broadway.
