The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to 39 Steps Off Broadway!
Remember that time when 39 Steps was on Broadway? And then remember that time it was Off Broadway?
And then remember that time it came back?
That time is right now, because 39 Steps is currently playing Off Broadway (again) at the Union Square Theatre.
Why does it keep coming back?
Well, have you ever heard of Occam’s Razor? It’s a principle that basically means the simplest answer is the right one.
And in this case, the simplest answer to why 39 Steps keeps steppin’ back on a NY stage is that . . . well . . . people like it. (Occam!)
You haven’t seen it? But you want to see it?
I’ve got two tickets for one reader to see these 4 actors playing 150 roles in this Hitchcockian thriller . . . and here’s how you win:
One actor playing more than one role is one of the coolest theatrical tricks in the Broadway toolbox. The device is used in everything from Gentleman’s Guide to the Alan Cumming Macbeth I produced to Love! Valour! Compassion!
But maybe other shows could get this treatment? What would you like to see done with one person playing multiple or all the roles? A West Side Story with a Maria who is also the Anita? Or a Sweeney where Tobias is also Johanna?
Give me an idea in the comments below, the crazier the better (isn’t that where great theater begins?) and one of you will win.
