Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have Patrick Barlow's The 39 Steps, playing at Fountain Hills Theater, January 11-27, 2013.
A mind-blowing cast of four actors play over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. The madness begins when mild-mannered Richard Hannay starts his evening at the theatre and ends the night with a dead body in his lap. Caught in maze of murder, espionage and flirtatious entanglements, our hero careens from the British music hall to the moors of Scotland and back to the London Palladium in search of a plausible alibi and the true identity of the killer. Broadway's most intriguing, most riotous, most unmissable Tony-winning comedy smash proves that anything the movies can do, the theatre can do more hilariously!
The 39 Steps is produced by Patty Torrilhon and directed by Peter J. Hill. The 39 Steps features; Terry Gadaire, Deborah Ostreicher, Roger Prenger and Michael Stewart.
