One Step at a Time


There is nothing better than starting the new year with a little mayhem and murder, right? Well, maybe not in real life, but for sure as part of the CAPA and Broadway Across America Series featuring Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps.

Seeking a frivolous night out at the theatre, Richard Hannay is lured into a world of intrigue by a mysterious woman claiming to be a spy. When she winds up dead in his flat, he flees London with the police hot on his trail. This is a classic portrayal of one man’s flight from wrong accusation through a series of misadventures and old fashioned romance.

The two-time Tony Award winning play features a cast of just four who reenact over 150 characters from Hitchcock’s 1935 thriller with just a few props and some seriously stunning theatrics.

Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps comes to the Palace Theatre ( 34 W. Broad St .) January 19-24. Tickets are $55, $50, $25, and $20 at the Ohio Theatre Ticket Office (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.com
