Olivier, Tony and Whatsonstage award-winning comedy The 39 Steps is to close after 9 years in the West End.
The 39 Steps is to close on 5 September 2015 having played the Criterion Theatre in London’s West End for the last 9 years.
Patrick Barlow’s adaptation of John Buchan’s 1914 spy thriller The 39 Steps is a tongue-in-cheek production with only 4 members of cast playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast paced fun and thrilling comedy. Over the last 9 years 50 actors have tread the boards and between them they have got through over 3,000 pairs of stockings, 530 O/S maps of Scotland, 38 pairs of handcuffs and 16 suspender belts.
When it closes, The 39 Steps will have played the 5th highest number of performances of any play in the West End history and will have been seen by over 3 million people world-wide.
If you haven’t seen it now is the time!
