HOBOKEN – Mile Square Theatre closes its 2017 season with a rollicking send up of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller, “The 39 Steps.” Just in time for the holidays, Patrick Barlow’s fast-paced comic romp turns the classic Hitchcock’s masterpiece into an evening that will be a treat for audiences of all ages. “We are so excited to produce The 39 Steps this holiday season,” says MST Artistic Director Chris O’Connor. “We wanted to present a show that would delight everybody, and this show fits the bill. It’s no exaggeration that our director, Mark Shanahan, is probably the best person in America to direct it, too. He was in it on Broadway, and has directed many regional theatre productions, including Houston’s Alley Theatre’s recent hit. Mark has an amazing knack for this type of comedy, and we’ve assembled a stellar cast.” “The 39 Steps” begins performances on Nov. 30 and runs until Dec. 23. Mile Square Theatre is located at 1400 Clinton St., Hoboken. Performances are Nov. 30 through Dec. 23, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are available at www.milesquaretheatre.org, or by calling (201) 683-7014. Tickets are $30-40, $18 for students and seniors. Discount parking is available at The Harlow, 1330 Willow Ave., and at Little Man Parking, 1300 Jefferson St. For more information on Mile Square Theatre, please visit www.milesquaretheatre.org.
