Take the crazy steps with Repertory Philippines’ The 39 Steps

It’s crazy and hilarious; this was the first time that I saw a play where from the start until the end, I am laughing in most the scenes. Repertory Philippines did a great choice in doing Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps this March at the Onstage Theater in Greenbelt 1 in Makati City with actors Michael Williams, Rem Zamora, Juliene Mendoza and Liza Infante. The comedy play was directed by Ana Abad Santos.

Rem Zamora and Juliene Mendoza did a great job as clowns in the play, clown which means, who did so many roles in the play from police, to Mr. Memory, Professor Jordan and so many more. With the restriction in time and scenes, Rem and Juliene manage to do execute their roles hilariously and consistently without a dull moment.

This was the first time I saw Michael Williams perform in the stage, I always knew him as a director in various plays like the Master Class. With a strong and serious image, I can’t believe he played the role of Richard Hannay naturally. Liza Infante, elegant as always did a wonderful performance; I enjoyed her role as Annabella Smith and Margaret its so funny and I can’t stop laughing maybe it’s in the way she deliver the lines with a very awkward movements in the stage.

I am not an Alfred Hitchcock fan, because I never saw his films and I was not even born during the peak of his career. But after seeing Repertory Philippines’ presentation of The 39 Steps, I am partly converted to a Hitchcock follower. But aside from the great and hilarious play that Rep Phils will be presenting this March, they will be giving away Blackberry phones for those who will be watching The 39 Steps from March 4 – 20. All they need to do is to purchase the orchestra center ticket that’s worth P800 and after the play they will answer a short survey questions and identify at least five (5) Alfred Hitchcock faces on the set and/or props of The 39 Steps. All entries can be submitted at Onstage, Greenbelt 1 during show dates, or at the Rep office located at Unit 519-520 AIC Burgundy Empire Tower, ADB Avenue, Corner Sapphire and Garnet Streets, Ortigas Center. And winners will be drawn after the last show on March 20.

The 39 Steps will run on March 4-20 (8:00 PM on Fridays and Saturday, 3:30 PM on Saturdays and Sundays) at the Onstage, Greenbelt 1 in Makati City.
