The 39 Steps

Directed by Peter Amster
A Hitchcock masterpiece meets spy novel in this hilarious whodunit. Richard Hannay, trapped in a boring life, encounters a woman who claims to be a spy. Soon thereafter, she is murdered and Hannay finds himself entangled in a nationwide manhunt, pursued by a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps.” This two-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning comedy is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), and abounding theatre magic.

Theatre at its finest... 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.

The Invisible Hand by Ayad Akhtar

March 26-April 16, 2022

American investment banker Nick Bright is held for ransom by a militant group in Pakistan, and nobody is coming to his aid. In exchange for a shot at freedom, Nick strikes a risky deal with his captors where he will teach them how to manipulate the global market, but is the price of freedom something he’s willing to pay? Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar’s suspenseful and provocative political thriller explores the consequences of fanatical devotion to both the scripture and the dollar.
