Drury Lane Theatre presents the Tony Award-winning Broadway and West End smash hit THE 39 STEPS, opening July 12 at 8 p.m. and running through August 26. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production photos below.
THE 39 STEPS stars Peter Simon Hilton as “Richard Hannay.” THE 39 STEPS is directed by multi-Jeff Award nominee David New (Drury Lane Theatre’s BROADWAY BOUND, Sarah Siddons Award Winner and former Associate Artistic Director at Steppenwolf Theatre). The cast also features Angela Ingersoll as “Annabella”/”Margaret”/”Pamela”; Jeff Dumas, and Paul Kalina.
Set in England and Scotland in 1935, THE 39 STEPS is the riveting story of Richard Hannay, who inadvertently embarks on a chaotic adventure full of narrow escapes after trying to help a female spy. When he wakes up to find her dead in his apartment, he flees from the police and an espionage organization, desperately trying to discover the truth and clear his name. Featuring four actors that bring more than 140 characters to life throughout the play, the whirlwind story requires ingenious theatrical devices to instantly transport audiences to a chase scene on a train, to a plane crash, to a luxurious Scottish manor, then to a London flat, and on to The London Palladium.
The performance schedule for THE 39 STEPS is as follows: Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m. ($35), Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. ($35) and 8 p.m. ($40), Fridays at 8:30 p.m. ($45), Saturdays at 5 p.m. ($45) and 8:30 p.m. ($46) and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. ($45) and 6 p.m. ($40). Lunch and dinner theater packages range from $49.75 to $68 depending on the day of the week.
