Alfred Hitchcock Spoof THE 39 STEPS to Begin Next Month at Rivertown Theaters
Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts continues its spectacular 2016-2017 season with the chaotic comedy The 39 Steps, running Friday, March 10 through March 26 on the MainStage.
This two-time Tony Award winner enjoyed two runs on Broadway and played for 10 years in London's West End. The 39 Steps is a comedic spoof of the classic 1935 Hitchcock film, with only 4 actors portraying more than 150 characters, sometimes changing roles in the blink of an eye. The brilliantly madcap and gripping comedy thriller follows our dashing hero Richard Hannay, as he races to solve the mystery of The 39 Steps, all the while trying to clear his name! This "whodunit, part espionage thriller and part slapstick comedy" is great fun for everyone from 9 to 99. The show's uproarious fast pace promises to leave audiences gasping for breath... in a good way!
