In “The 39 Steps,” a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale.
Due to COVID-19, masks will be required to enter the building and are to be worn until patrons are seated. In addition, seating will be limited and tickets are first come first serve. Social distancing will also be enforced throughout the building.
