Amazing actors great use of props and costumes.
Brilliant show so pleased I booked to take Hubby, he really enjoyed it. I thought the main actor was a bit like Basil out of faulty towers. Worth every penny.
A delightful surprise, the sets were imaginative (how do they get an A4 Pacific and the Forth Bridge on stage?) the pace was comic, fast but the diction perfect. We both laughed out loud a lot. Highly recommended.
Went not expecting it to be ordinary - it was instead great fun, very well acted and well staged.
It was a joy to watch with hilarious moments, comic timing brilliantly performed- an outstanding cast- go see it!
Having gone to London for a pre-Christmas trip the first week in December, the decision to go to the 39 Steps really was a last minute decision with the tickets being bought less than an hour before curtain up. It was without doubt one of the best evening's entertainment I have ever had in London. I thought that I was past the laugh-out-loud stage but the show literally had tears rolling down my cheeks. Check out Paul Bigley's address to the Liberal Party - one of the highlights of a spectacularly good production. Clearly the second paragraph of the description of the show has to be firmly tongue in cheek and poor lulu, perhaps the comedy was too subtle in places - it really helped if you could see the various references e.g. to the shower scene in Psycho. Someone described the comedy as slapstick but personally I find slapstick humour a bit naive: this show had you thinking what was going to happen next with very little in the way of predictability. Were Edinburgh nearer London, I would happily have a return visit to the Criterion.
Sat 27/10/12 Criterion Theatre,39 Steps,London,Just seen the best show ever, In a very good Unassuming little theatre with excellent staff and yes i have seen a lot of theatres and shows.
Totally absolutely brilliant. I am 50 and I am fairly sure that this was the most entertaining 2 hours I have had in my 50 years without publishable exception. The acting was superb. The props masterfully employed and the script excellent. We laughed and laughed some more. If you want to go out n London. Get the Wheelers meal deal with this show and you will have a great meal and a simply superb show with change of £90.
Very funny and entertaining. Now going back for a second time tonight with a party of 9. Excellent value for money and brilliantly executed by the actors. No hesitation in recommending. Cleverly produced with simple props but it all works. A treat.
You need to watch the original 1935 film before you see this stage production as all the scenes in the play are derived from the film and not the original book. It was so good that I been twice. This is a masterful production of an exciting thriller set in 1915. Go and see it but 1st buy the dvd of The 39 Steps with Robert Donat.
How a cast of only 4 could produce such an incredibly entertaining show with so many characters is beyond me. We have never seen a serious storyline superbly re-produced as a comedy as this one was. An absolute joy for 2 hours.
