Directed by Maria Aitken and adapted by Patrick Barlow, the play is a comedic take on Hitchcock’s 1935 classic thriller of the same name about a man who is forced by a mysterious woman’s death into a cross-country race for his life. The show played previously on Broadway for 771 performances.

Behlmann plays leading man Richard Hanney and MacCluggage is the sole female performer in the four-actor cast.

Behlmann appeared on Broadway in Journey’s End and off-Broadway in Ghosts. He also acted in The Glass Menagerie in East Hampton opposite Amy Irving.

MacCluggage’s New York credits include The Farnsworth Invention, Stuck and NYClassical’s King Lear.
