The 39 StepsThe 39 Steps had its Broadway premiere at Roundabout Theatre Company's American Airlines Theatre, with previews beginning January 4, 2008 and  the opening night January 15, 2008.  The Broadway cast is led by Charles Edwards who reprises the role of Richard Hannay which he played to great acclaim in the London production.  Edwards is joined by Arnie Burton (Clown), Jennifer Ferrin (Pamela/Margaret) and Cliff Saunders (Clown).   The Broadway company also includes Claire Brownell, Cameron Fulmar and Mark Shanahan, who were not part of the Boston production. The limited engagement will play through March 23.

The show has a long history. It was created some years ago, as a two-man routine, by a pair of English comics, Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon, who toured it in the north of England.  The property was then purchased by Patrick Barlow, a British comedian and actor, who adapted it into roughly its current form. When Maria Aitken joined up as the director, she added her own touches.  "It's done with enormous love," she said reassuringly. "We're really very respectful of the movie; we take it seriously."

"I put in more things from the film," she said. One notion she had fun with was salting references to other Hitchcock movies throughout the evening.  She placed a flock of birds, for example, atop a direction sign.

The little homages aren't underlined, she said. You either get them or you don't. She said she's found the big difference between British and American audiences, based on the Boston run, is the way they respond to the Hitchcock allusions. "Americans get them much more than British audiences. They really laugh. In America, I think, there's much more adoration of film."
