I had the opportunity to speak with a number of acting students in their final year at the Birmingham School of Acting.
Here’s what they had to say about it:
To summarize none of them agreed with Hitchcock`s quote, but all of them adored Hitchcock`s talent.
Kevin Varty also got a part in a play where he will play Hitchcock himself in Hitchcock Blonde. That reminded me that in Central London THE 39 STEPS runs at the Criterion Theatre.
“A joyous version of the Hitchcock classic”
As the Sunday Times says about the play
1. Hitchcock`s 39 Steps production is on the London West End. Can any theatre play give back `the Hichcock feeling`?
