Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and
you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time Tony®
and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters
(played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs,
missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance! In The 39 Steps, 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 Stepsamounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
