National Tour of Bullets Over Broadway Visits Off-Broadway's 39 Steps
Last night, the cast of the national tour of Bullets Over Broadway used their night off to visit 39 Steps. The off-Broadway show plays at the Union Square Theatre and features four actors portraying more than 150 characters.
39 Steps 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 company 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.
Based on the 1994 film by Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath, Bullets Over Broadway opened at the St. James Theatre on April 10, 2014, where it played 156 performances. The production, which earned six Tony nominations, featured a score of old standards including "Tain't Nobody's Biz-ness If I Do," "Let's Misbehave," "I'm Sitting on Top of the World," and "Runnin' Wild," with a book by Woody Allen and original direction and choreography by Susan Stroman. Jeff Whiting will direct the touring production, which begins at Cleveland's Playhouse Square Center on October 6.
