The new stage version of "Fatal Attraction" and the long-running comedy "The 39 Steps" have just been confirmed for the 2014 Post-Gazette Critic's Choice theater tour to London, March 9-16. Along with history, street life, palaces, museums, pubs and daffodils in bloom, the trip includes the following:
* "Stephen Ward," Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical about the sensational Profumo affair.
* "The 39 Steps," the popular comic adaptation of the novel and Hitchcock film.
* "Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense," featuring the ineffable Bertie and unflappable Jeeves.
* "Fatal Attraction," a sympathetic adaptation of the film, directed by Trevor Nunn and starring Natascha McElhone, in previews.
