B Street Theatre
Ongoing-Feb 20
Tues 6:30pm; Wed 2pm & 6:30pm; Thurs & Fri 8pm;
Sat 5pm & 9pm; Sun 2pm
Sometimes the best comedy comes from being dead serious. We learned from Monty Python that no matter how silly those fellows were in word or action they seldom cracked a smile. That is a fundamental reason why The 39 Steps, based on the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock, is a raucously funny evening in the theatre. Laughter is inevitable. Make it a Valentine's date at the special Sunday evening performance, benefiting RAFT.
