THE 39 STEPS

May 19, 2016 - Sep 11, 2016

CLO Cabaret

HITCHCOCK MEETS HILARIOUS IN THIS TONY AWARD®-WINNING HIT COMEDY!
This madcap comic thriller features a juicy spy story mixed with a dash of Monty Python mayhem. A young man bored with life falls in with a mysterious woman claiming to be a secret agent and soon he’s the target of a cross-country manhunt with a shadowy organization called “The 39 Steps” on his trail. Four ridiculously talented actors take on over 150 roles in a plot packed with intrigue, international danger, an on-stage plane crash, old-fashioned romance, high-spirited comedy and a death-defying finale!

“ABSURDLY ENJOYABLE! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock's film is fast and frothy, performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands.” –Ben Brantley, The New York Times
