Spies and secret agents take the Circuit Playhouse stage

By Lisa Lynch

Hitchcock meets hilarious in this madcap, comic thriller – a juicy spy story mixed with a dash of Monty Python mayhem. A young man bored with his life falls in with a mysterious woman claiming to be a secret agent, and soon he’s the target of a cross-country manhunt with a shadowy organization called “The 39 Steps” on his trail. Four actors take on over 150 roles in a plot packed with intrigue, international danger, an on-stage plane crash, old-fashioned romance, high-spirited comedy, and a death-defying finale.

The 39 Steps is directed by Kevin Shaw (Disney’s High School Musical) and features Company Members Michael Gravois (Ostrander winner: The Seafarer) and Jenny Lynn Christoffersen (The Drowsy Chaperone, Speech & Debate), and local actors Ryan Kathman and Matt Reed.

The 39 Steps runs at The Circuit Playhouse May 13-June 5, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. The Pay-What-You-Can performance is Thursday, May 19. The Circuit Playhouse is located at 51 S. Cooper in Midtown. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656 or go online to playhouseonthesquare.org.
