|Village Theatre presents the slapstick comedy, The 39 Steps. (Village Theatre)|
THEATREWhile you may have seen 1935 Alfred Hitchcock movie, The 39 Steps, I can almost guarantee that you’ve never seen it like this. This stage version features over 150 characters played by only four different actors. The comedy is a Tony and Drama Desk award winning play where the staging is almost more creative that than the play itself including an on-stage plane crash.
