Tag Archives: The 39 Steps
Face it. Resistance is useless when it comes to enjoying The 39 Steps. Any theater worth its comic salt will plunge head long into this madcap Hitchcock parody — Vero Beach’s Riverside Theatre included.
Oft-produced plays can sometimes be a groaner to sit through, yet again. How many more laughs can be extracted from the same story line and same characters? However, sometimes a production squeezes out even more juice. That’s exactly what TheatreWorks Silicon Valley had done with a top-notch, vaudeville-inspired production of The 39 Steps.
The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s The 39 Steps is blessed with a steady procession of sight gags, puns, pratfalls and vaudevillian humor all delivered with enough energy and skill to keep a satisfied grin on your face much of the night.
