a staged adaptation of hitchcock's *39STEPS* is currently playing in
boston  . . .   if you have any interest in hitchcock -- or in the
larger question of the relationship between genre and the constructions
of meaning -- you probably owe it to yourself to see this, since it
raises [or at least suggests] a number of interesting larger questions
. . . it is also immensely entertaining . . . i saw it last night and am
only beginning to work through the various ways in which its playing
with generic conventions allows for a complex layering of signification
-- topics that might be worth exploring on list if others see it and
want to share their thoughts

but if you're in new england you have to hurry -- it's running here, at
the huntington, only through 14 october . . .  it is apparently also
running at this time in the west end and is scheduled to open in NY in
the winter so if you're lucky enough to be in either of those cities you
have more chances to catch it
