“An absurdly enjoyable, gleefully theatrical riff on Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 film.” —The New York Times
Whodunit meets hilarious in this recklessly theatrical riff on Alfred Hitchcock’s cinematic 1935 masterpiece which in turn was based on John Buchan’s spy genre classic. In it a handsome hero (complete with stiff-upperlip, pencil moustache and British gung-ho attitude) encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women, all while trying to escape from an accidental entanglement with a deadly group of spies called The 39 Steps. A quick witted and acrobatic troupe of four actors will create dozens of locations and over 130 roles in this rollicking evening of winking wisecracks and wow-inducing stage wizardry.
Evenings: Tuesday - Sunday at 7:30 p.m.
Matinees: Saturday and Sundays at 2 p.m.,
Thursdays at noon

Holden Caulfield, the hyper-intelligent, distressed hero of Catcher in the Rye, hated movies. He did, however, make an exception for my favorite director. In the book he takes Phoebe, his 10-year-old kid sister, to see her favorite movie, The 39 Steps.More
