The 39 Steps to a Successful Play

1. a newly renovated theatre

2. a who done it by Alfred Hitchcock

3. actors who can change characters at the drop of a hat

4. 4 trunks

5. humorous references to other famous Hitchcock films

6. excellent directing

7. well that’s all well and good, but who would really read to 39?  The most important thing I can tell you is this play made my non-theatre loving boyfriend laugh out loud.  Yes, he literally LOL!  I enjoyed every moment of this hilarious and fast paced script.

It was a fabulous production by Charleston Stage’s talented and professional cast and crew.  I was incredibly impressed by the resumes of each of the actors, their ability to manage demanding day jobs and put on a play of this caliber.  Plus any excuse to visit the Dock Street Theatre, America’s first theatre, is a treat.

The Cast:

Richard Hannay – the dashing Kyle W. Barnette

Annabella Schmidt/Pamela/Margaret – Beth Curley

Clown/Man 2 – Brian J. Porter

Clown/Man 1 – George Younts
