Winner of two Tony and Drama Desk Awards in 2008, and Best New Comedy Laurence Olivier Award in 2007, The 39 Steps is Broadway's longest-running comedy. Ben Brantely of The New York Times said the play is "theatre at its finest... absurdly enjoyable! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock's film is fast and frothy, performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands."
New Harmony Theatre's cast includes Actors' Equity Association members Fred Rose as Richard Hannay, Nili Bassman as Annabella Schmidt/Pamela/Margaret, Richard Price as Clown 1, and returning from Lost in Yonkers, Jonathan Brody as Clown 2.
The production features scenic design by Robert Broadfoot, lighting design by Michael P. Frohling, costume design by Shan Jensen, and stage management by Actors' Equity Association production stage manager, Liz Reddick. USI Theatre students Alex Hellenberg, who created the musical composition and serves as accompanist on piano, and Daniel Kopp, sound designer, round out the artistic team.
Evening performances on Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16 start at 7:30 p.m. and matinees on Saturday and Sunday, July 17 begin at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors (60+), and $10 for those 25 and younger.
New Harmony Theatre is a professional Equity theatre produced by University of Southern Indiana. Plays are performed in the historic Murphy Auditorium located at 419 Tavern Street in New Harmony, Indiana.
