The new off-Broadway production of the long-running Broadway comedy 39 Steps has announced its cast for its open-ended run at the Union Square Theatre. Performances begin Wednesday, April 1, in advance of an official April 13 opening.

39 Steps features four actors portraying more than 150 characters. The cast is led by Robert Petkoff (All the Way) as Richard Hannay, the dashing hero racing to solve the mystery of the 39 Steps while trying to clear his name; Brittany Vicars as the fetching Pamela, Annabella, and Margaret; Billy Carter as Clown #1; and original Broadway cast member Arnie Burton (Lives of the Saints) as Clown #2.

The play is adapted by Tony-nominated author Patrick Barlow from an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon, and based on the book by John Buchan as well as the classic 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film. The upcoming production reunites the entire original creative team, including Tony-nominated director Maria Aitken, Tony-winning lighting designer Kevin Adams, Tony-winning sound designer Mic Pool, and Tony-nominated scenic and costume designer Peter McKintosh.
