Finding the Farce in Hitchcock, Again,
‘The 39 Steps’ Ben Brantley, The New York Times
The modest double digits in its title don’t begin to capture the exponentially increasing numbers conjured by “39 Steps,” in previews at the Union Square Theater. Since its British debut a decade ago, this delightfully dizzy little play — adapted from “The 39 Steps,” the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film about love (and espionage) on the run — has divided and multiplied itself in ways that would shame an amoeba. It features a cast of four playing 150 characters, who pursue, run from and deceive one another on a basically bare stage that somehow feels incredibly crowded.
Still running in London’s West End, where it opened in 2006, the play has been seen in more than 20 countries, with a whopping Broadway run of 771 performances (that ended in 2010). Now it returns with its original director, Maria Aitken, and a quarter of its original four-member Broadway cast, the frantically industrious Arnie Burton, who one hopes has had a good rest in the interim.
