The 39 Steps at Centerstage

In his review of The 39 Steps at Centerstage Michael Dresdner puts the word “plot” in quotes, explaining: "There is one – the plot of Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps – but it’s really quite irrelevant, especially in this version. The feeling you walk away with is that it’s merely a structural excuse for this excellent four person cast to stage something remarkably close to a series of Monty Python sketches. If you like that sort of thing, and fortunately, I do, you’ll be delighted with how very well they do it."

I didn't get to see this one - either one- but it seems my fellow critics are having a field day and tons of fun with it.
