Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps
The hilarious Off-Broadway hit phenomenon

November 16, 2012 Friday @ 8 p.m. Mainstage Theatre


“Inventively astonishing, riotous and marvelous!” - The New York Times

A runaway hit in London, this two-time Tony Award-winner and 2007 Olivier Award for Best Comedy features four actors taking on over 140 roles! Mix an Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of vintage Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a hysterical whodunit, part espionage thriller and part slapstick comedy adapted for the stage from the famous film and novel. Shots ring out across a crowded theatre, and Richard Hannay is lured into a world of intrigue by a mysterious woman claiming to be a spy. When she winds up dead in his flat, he flees London with the police hot on his trail. The laughs never stop with this fun, fast-paced play that is “clever…imaginative and brilliantly acted.” (The Guardian)
