It’s been a busy time for Alfred Hitchcock fans, with the release late last year of the film “Hitchcock,” starring Anthony Hopkins.
And this year marks the 50th anniversary of Hitchcock’s 1963 thriller, “The Birds,” filmed in Bodega and Bodega Bay.
And now there’s a play called “Bodega Bay,” by Elisabeth Karlin, running at the Abingdon Theater in New York.
The show got a searing review in the New York Times.
“Not that Hitchcock can be held responsible for the mess that is ‘Bodega Bay,’ which consciously uses Hitchcockian themes and is studded with references to his films,” reviewer Daniel M. Gold wrote Monday.
The weather in New York has not been welcoming, either, with high winds and deep snow last week, and more snow expected.
But the play is scheduled to run through Sunday.
“Snow or no snow, the show must go on,” the abingdontheatre.org web site declared.
