The Lovesong of Alfred J Hitchcock makes its premiere at Leicester's Curve Theatre later this week before a national tour. Here, Kieran Johnson talks to Jack McNamara, director of The Lovesong of Alfred J Hitchcock and artistic director of New Perspectives.
Following his last two comic turns in The Country Wife and See How They Run, actor Jo Stone-Fewings has now taken over the lead role of Hannay in the West End’s fastest-paced comedy, The 39 Steps, at the Criterion Theatre. Stone-Fewings is joined by three other actors who play “150 roles” in Patrick Barlow’s adaptation of John Buchan’s thriller, best known from Alfred Hitchcock’s film version. The West End production of The 39 Steps won Best New Comedy at last year’s Olivier and Whatsonstage.com Awards, while the Broadway transfer has just won two Tony Awards this week.
