Malibu Playhouse is thrilled to announce that the first show of the 2014-2015 season will be the the Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning THE 39 STEPS. Written by renowned playwright Patrick Barlow and based on the Alfred Hitchcock classic film, this hilarious whodunit has double-crossing secret agents, death-defying chases, and devastatingly beautiful women. And with only 4 actors portraying more than 130 characters in a fast-paced, uproarious 100 minutes, the show promises to leave you gasping for breath… in a good way!
This brilliantly madcap comic thriller follows our dashing would-be hero Richard Hannay as he races to solve the mystery of the 39 Steps, all the while trying to avoid being framed for murder (and being tossed from a speeding train).
THE 39 STEPS has been seen by over 3 million people in over 39 countries… and soon it will be in our very own backyard at Malibu Playhouse!
Directed by The Second City’s Ron West (trust us, he knows comedy). Produced by Malibu Playhouse’s Claudia Zahn and Rick D. Wasserman.
THE 39 STEPS will have previews October 16th & 17th, and will run October 18th – November 23rd, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 3PM.
