Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have this 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. The New York Post called it, “The most entertaining show on Broadway!”
“…a comedy winner, packed to the gills with double entendres and references to many Hitchcock – and other classic – films.”
Susan Rife, Sarasota Herald Tribune
“’39 Steps’ is both a love letter to Hitchcock and a pie in the master’s face. Mostly pie, to be sure. But it’s very good pie. And quite full of laughs…”
Marty Fugate, The Observer
“If someone hasn’t yet coined a term for these [high pitched, comic style] pieces, the field is wide open. But in any case, The 39 Steps, now onstage at the Players, is surely one of the best of the lot.”
Kay Kipling, Sarasota Magazine
