’39 Steps’ to bow in Boston

Show hits Huntington for U.S. premiere

NEW HAVEN — The West End hit “The 39 Steps” has plans for Broadway — but first it will have its U.S.bow as the 2007-08 season opener for Boston’s Huntington Theater Company.

The four-hander comedy, adapted by Patrick Barlow and based on the John Buchan novel (which Alfred Hitchcock turned into a classic film) will play Sept. 14 to Oct. 14 in what an announcement is calling a pre-Broadway engagement. The production is helmed by Maria Aitken.

Season, the last at the Huntington for a.d. Nicholas Martin, also will feature two world preems by Beantown writers: Ronan Noone’s “Brendan” (Oct. 12 to Nov. 11) and Sinan Unel’s “The Cry of the Reed” (March 28 to May 4). The season will also feature Wendy Wasserstein’s “Third” (Jan. 4 to Feb. 3), Conor McPherson’s “Shining City” (March 7 to April 6) and the musical “She Loves Me,” helmed by Martin. David Rabe’s “Streamers,” helmed by Scott Ellis, which was postponed from this season because of the director’s work with “Curtains,” will now run Nov. 9 to Dec. 9.
