The 39 Steps
Thursday, January 7, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until Sunday, January 24, 2016
Opening January 7th to make your New Year fun is The 39 Steps, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic “wrong man” espionage thriller, transferred from screen to stage as a farce with uproarious results. Ripe with allusion to other Hitchcock titles, it’s a movie lover’s laugh anthology, tweaking the high-tension genre with wit, energy, and affection.
As in the film, Richard Hannay, falsely accused and hounded from one end of Britain to the other, fights to expose a Nazi plot on the eve of World War II. With homage to Texas’s own Greater Tuna, this version of The 39 Steps features just three actors as 150 different characters, all chasing or abetting our hero Hannay. It’s a madcap romp through gripping melodrama. Directed by George Brock, the production spins its serious story with comedic equipoise and stagecraft.
The 39 Steps runs from January 7 – 24, Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fri & Sat 8pm, Sun 2pm. Tickets are $30 – 48. For ticket and show information, contact the Queensbury Box Office at 713.467.4497 or visit online at queensburytheatre.org.
