John Buchan’s THE 39 STEPS – memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935 – has been a huge hit on the London stage and now comes to the United States to take the stage at the Huntington Theatre in Boston.

The show actually sticks closely to Hitchcock’s celebrated 1935 screen version of the tale, which itself introduced a sly humor and sexiness to the chaste and earnest original book. This means that when Buchan’s intrepid hero Richard Hannay goes on the run after being falsely accused of murder, he famously ends up handcuffed to a beautiful woman as he dodges the police and an international spy ring across the Scottish moors. Literally nothing has been cut from this HILARIOUS AND SPECTACULAR version of this spell-binding thriller – legendary scenes include THE CHASE ON THE FLYING SCOTSMAN, THE ESCAPE ON THE FORTH BRIDGE, THE FIRST THEATRICAL BI–PLANE CRASH EVER STAGED, THE RATHER PROVOCATIVE ‘BEDROOM’ SEQUENCE and the death-defying (or nearly!) FINALE AT THE LONDON PALLADIUM!

The 39 Steps Summary:

This classic British thriller was one of Alfred Hitchcock's first major international successes, and it introduced a number of the stylistic and thematic elements that became hallmarks of his later work. Richard Hannay,  a Canadian rancher on vacation in England, attends a music hall performance by "Mr. Memory."  In the midst of the show, shots ring out and Richard flees the theater. Moments later, a terrified woman begs Richard to help her; back at his room, she tells him that she's a British spy whose life has been threatened by international agents waiting outside. Richard is certain that she's mad until she reappears at his door in the morning, near death with a knife in her back, a map in her hand, and muttering something about "39 Steps." Discovering that a group of thugs are indeed waiting outside, Richard slips away and takes the first train to the Scottish town on the dead woman's map. Richard learns that he's now wanted by the police for murder, and he must find a way to clear his name. He begins trying to do so with the help of a woman he meets en route, Pamela, who serves as his unwitting assistant, even after she tries to turn him in.
