A Whodunit Comedy

Broadway’s longest running comedy! A man bored with life meets a beautiful and mysterious spy. Soon, a secret organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with the hilarity of Monty Python and you have a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), speeding trains, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

“Rollicking Fun! Hugely Entertaining!” – Sunday Times
“Theatre at its finest!.. Absurdly enjoyable! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock’s film is fast and frothy, performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands.”- The New York Times
