Theatre at the Center’s “The 39 Steps” is a Delightfully Silly Hitchcock Spoof

***** Highly Recommended ***** Theatre at the Center’s production of “The 39 Steps” will keep you laughing from start to finish.  If you think you remember Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 black and white, and very moody, spy film, so you already know this plot, forget about it!  This version of “The 30 Steps” is a campy,…

Steppenwolf’s Production of “The Flick” is Perfectly Cast & Superbly Acted!

**** Recommended **** In a lot of ways, Steppenwolf’s production of “The Flick” reminded me of vacation trips when my children would ask “Are we there yet?” every five minutes.  My “C” crew – Cindy, Colleen and Crista – were all in agreement, “The Flick” could use some judicious pruning.  On the other hand, it…
