Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you have an intriguing, thrilling, riotous, and unmissable comedy.  A man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy.  When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!  A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!     Rated PG-13
