North by Northwest
The box office smash hit North by Northwest comes to QPAC for the very first time!
The magic of film and theatre combine in this incredible production. Don’t miss Alfred Hitchcock’s supreme comedy of suspense live on stage! Two weeks only in the Lyric Theatre, QPAC.
Every twist, every thrill, every hairbreadth escape from Hitchcock’s original genius work is retained for this stunning new stage adaptation from director Simon Phillips and adapted for the stage by Carolyn Burns.
Roger O. Thornhill is a suave and successful advertising executive, abducted by thugs who insist he is a man called George Kaplan. Chaos ensues. When they don’t believe him, that’s infuriating. When they try to kill him, that’s frightening. And when they pin a murder on him, that’s time to run!
From New York to North Dakota, Thornhill is chased by spies, Feds, crop-dusting planes and the inevitable cool blonde. North by Northwest is a lightning paced thriller that mixes glamour with espionage for a truly irresistible cocktail.
