This ingenious comic stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The 39 Steps turns a cast of four into more than 100 zany characters (in 100 minutes) with a mix of Hitchcockian panache, spy novel thrills and a touch of Monty Python absurdity. The winner of two Tony and Drama Desk Awards, The 39 Steps is a fast-paced and funny whodunit that's brimming with action and romance. Accused of a murder he didn't commit, Richard Hannay flees from the authorities and encounters a string of hair-raising adventures -- as well as an unlikely love connection. Gasp and guffaw as four talented actors re-enact the entire film (including every train chase, plane crash and murder), gleefully portraying the many spies, villains and other intriguing characters that inhabit this action-packed world.

This production is outstanding, and a must-see! Great respect is deserved for Director, Christy Watkins. The set was beyond our expectations, lighting perfect. The entire cast did a fantastic job, but we especially loved Chip Simmons and Blake Weir! Chip's expressions and his every move made a perfect Sherlock Holmes. My words don't do justice to the kudos they deserve for such a wonderful performance. And, as always, many thanks for all of this to Jeannette Clift George, who came out and greeted the audience with her warm, inviting, beautiful nature. I could watch this again and again just to see Chip as Sherlock. Absolutely wonderful!

About the Ticket Supplier: A.D. Players
A. D. Players, or After Dinner Players, was founded in 1967 by Jeannette Clift George. The troupe of part-time actors performed its first performance in 1968, and seven years later, in 1975, the Players created a Touring Company. In the late 1970s, the Players purchased the Grace theater building. Soon, the Touring Company was making an international performances, and the Players also established the Theater Arts Academy, originally providing drama classes to children. A. D. Players continued to grow through the early nineties, even expanding with the building of Saint Street Annex, which served as the new home for costume shop, Touring Company, rehearsal hall, and Theater Arts Academy. The company also started Houston’s first year round children’s theater at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church Rotunda. In 1997, A. D. Players made their off-broadway debut of John His Story at Lamb’s Theatre, New York City.
The future of A. D. Players is bright. In 2003, the company purchased over three aces of land in the Galleria area of Houston. The purchase of this land will enable A. D. Players to consolidate six current theater locations, including a 450-seat Mainstage Theater, a 300-seat Children’s Theater, and a 150-seat Black Box Theater. This new facility, located in one of the top tourist destinations in Houston, will enable A. D. Players to continue serving the Houston community with its unique artistic signature of hope and faith.
