Description

Take four actors portraying over 150 characters (including inanimate objects), a melodrama adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan, a 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock, and add comic stylings the likes of a Monty Python sketch with a dash of theater magic and you have the wildly entertaining, fast-paced whodunit stage play, The 39 Steps. This 2-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, lighting fast quick-changes, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

A man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!

A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
