Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have Patrick Barlow's 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 (each donning multiple personas), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

The plot: 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!

- The New York Times
