Buy one ticket, get a second at half price for the 9 pm show
If you’re looking for the best mystery book or jigsaw puzzle in the Pittsburgh area, everyone knows you go to the award-winning Mystery Lovers Bookshop in Oakmont.
It follows as night the day, therefore, that the mystery and puzzle within The 39 Steps, coming to the City Theater, is another must stop.
October 23, 2010 is Mystery Lovers Night at City Theater for the 9 PM performance of the U.S. premier of:
City Theatre opens the 2010/11 season with The 39 Steps, the Broadway comedy hit adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan and the movie byAlfred Hitchcock. Directed by Artistic Director Tracy Brigden, The 39 Steps runs on City Theatre’s Mainstage from October 16–November 7, 2010.
Equally inspired by Alfred Hitchcock and Monty Python, this madcap thriller took Broadway by storm and earned two pairs of Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Mild mannered Richard Hannay finds himself drawn into a tangled web of espionage. His only hope rests in solving the riddle of the 39 Steps while staying one step ahead of ruthless German spies. Four actors become more than 150 characters and stage the non-stop action, train chases, and plane crashes in this hilarious comedy hit that The New York Times called "theater at its finest."
Buy one regularly priced ticket and get the second half off. Just mention Mystery Lovers Bookshop when purchasing your ticket. Meet us in the lobby before the play.
