“The 39 Steps” opening soon at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre. The play will open on September 10th 2015. It promises to be a lively show with an onstage plane crash also a chase on top of a moving train, sounds very exciting.
I first saw the classic 1935 thriller by Alfred Hitchcock many years ago, I remember how intense it was, this version however will be just as thrilling but with lots of comedy too.
It is about a man Richard Hanney played by John Stadelman who is bored and goes to a play while there he witnesses a murder. There is a mysterious woman in black played by Katie Beck. Justin Waggle and Stephen Kline round out the cast playing multiple roles.
This is a fast paced whodunit about spies and murder with dashing heroes and classy dames, gosh I can’t wait until opening night….
