The 39 Steps, written by Patrick Barlow and directed by Ricci Dedola, is Broadway’s longest-running comedy, and the winner of two Tony Awards, a Drama Desk Award, and the Laurence Olivier Award for the best new comedy of 2007. Acted with just one man (Tony Camarda), one woman (Nicole Paravicini), and two clowns (Steve Worthen & Steve Jordan) playing an estimated 250 roles between them, The 39 Steps is a highly physical satire featuring train chases, plane crashes, shadowy spies, and a love story to boot.
