Are you a fan of physical comedy and smoke-and-mirrors special effects? Then you'll love how that scene in the photo above was staged.
The comedic Hitchcock adaptation "The 39 Steps" has a run at the Huntington on its way from London to Broadway. I just caught a preview, and thought it was fabulously entertaining and clever. Four actors play countless roles, in gorgeous costumes, while pulling off physical stunts. Trunks, tarps, hats, smoke, flashlights and even a shower curtain are used to cinematic effect. This cast stars Charles Edwards from the London production, which won a Laurence Olivier Award for best new comedy.
