The 39 Steps

By Patrick Barlow

Directed by Cristina Alicea

The 39 Steps is the two-time Tony Award-winning hit comedic spoof of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film, with only 6 actors portraying more than 150 characters, sometimes changing roles in the blink of an eye. The brilliantly madcap story follows the dashing hero Richard Hannay as he races to solve the mystery of The 39 Steps, all the while trying to clear his name! The show’s uproarious fast-paced 100 minutes promises to leave you gasping for breath…in a good way!

Ben Brantley of the New York Times calls it “Absurdly Enjoyable”.
