Welcome to my ongoing, 2013 labor-of-love photo series bringing you iconic snapshots from behind the scenes on opening nights in Colorado theater. All photos by John Moore copyright 2013 for www.CultureWest.Org.
Opening No. 63: Town Hall Arts Center’s “The 39 Steps”: OK, so these photos were not taken on an opening night, given that the production closes this Sunday (May 5). But I’m playing catchup on the openings I missed during my foray into directing “Always … Patsy Cline.” In this quirky British send-up of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 spy thriller, four actors play nearly 50 roles, retooling the classic thriller into a hilarious bit of stage nonsense comedy that manages to be both theatrically inventive and faithful to the movie. Featuring James O’Hagan-Murphy, Eric Mather, Mackenzie Paulsen and Seth Maisel. Directed by Bob Wells. Remaining showtimes: 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, plus 2 p.m. Sunday, May 5, at 2450 W. Main St., Littleton, 303-794-2787 or town hall’s ticketing page. Thanks: Rebecca M. Joseph, Leslie Rutherford and Drew Kowalkowski.
