    Alfred Hitchcock's
    The 39 Steps

    EXTENDED! September 3-26, 2010

    "An absurdly enjoyable, gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchock's film."
    - The New York Times

    Adapted by Patrick Barlow
    from John Buchan's novel and Alfred Hitchcock's thriller.

    Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you've got The 39 Steps, fresh from its surprise smash-hit success on Broadway. When a femme fatale is murdered in the home of a wealthy Britishman, he escapes being framed only to find a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" hot on his trail. This fast-paced comedy features an on-stage plane crash, desperate romance, and a death-defying finale. A two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winner.
