The 39 Steps is a Tony Award-winning farce based loosely off the 1935 film by Hitchcock. Four actors will play multiple characters, contend with crazy special effects and pay their respects to Hitchcock’s iconic movie moments while delivering a faithful, if tonguein-cheek, rendering of the original movie.
