Blank Canvas has prioritized silly over stylized for its production of "The 39 Steps" which, while playful and thoroughly entertaining, is pedestrian.
THE 39 STEPS is a farcical romp which gets a good, but not great production. If your theater liking is for improbable plot twists, and extended ridiculousness, the Blank Canvas production makes for a chucklefest and should delight you.
If you are a fan of Hitchcock, spy movies, murder mysteries and slapstick all combined, this is the show for you. A thoroughly engaging cast that keeps the laughs going all show long.

It’s hard to find a whole show that’s as funny and engaging as the first act of The 39 Steps. A treasure trove for Hitchcock fans, and everyone else for that matter.
