Brett Marks dug up the following while doing some research on The 39 Steps:
"By a strange coincidence, the play, original film, Hitchcock and Buchan all celebrate their anniversaries in the month of August - August 14 is the first anniversary of the London production: August 1 was the release date for the original film; August 13 is the 108th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock’s birth; and August 29 is the 132nd anniversary of John Buchan’s birth."
Thanks for the factoids Brett! Looks like the London Cast did a little celebrating too.
Tickets currently available by subscription only. On sale to the general public on August 23.
