Spies, Lies, and Tomfoolery in Hitchcock's THE 39 STEPS at Village Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Jan 9, 2017

On stage in Issaquah starting January 19, this Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning play features four versatile cast members putting on a frenetic show-within-a-show. Based on the novel by John Buchan and the classic film by Alfred Hitchcock, and adapted by Patrick Barlow, The 39 Steps has become a stage favorite not just for its nostalgic spy thriller plot and winking references to Hitchcock, but for the virtuosic clowning required by the farcical stage adaptation, leading it to be one of the longest running plays in the history of London's West End.

BWW Review: Village's THE 39 STEPS Packed with Laughs but Lacks Pace
by Jay Irwin - Jan 20, 2017

BWW Review: BILLY ELLIOT Leaps Into to Rivertown
by Heidi Scheuermann - Jan 17, 2017

This weekend marked the first weekend in a three-weekend run of BILLY ELLIOT at Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts. It's not very often that I walk into a theater to see a show that I know little to nothing about, and it's usually a nice surprise. This production was no exception. If you're like me and have no prior knowledge on what BILLY ELLIOT is about other than dancing, rest assured that along with wonderful dancing comes a very touching story about a boy who is trying to pursue his newfound dream while earning his father's affection during a very trying time in history. In other words, expect to be impressed. (more...)
