How did lulu not find this funny? There were 14 of us and everyone found this side splittingly funny. The cast of 4 were fabuloso (if that's not a word it is now) The change of scenes were well done and whoever thought them up has a vivid imagination, which made it clever and amazing to watch. We were talking about it all weekend and it still comes up in conversation now 3 weeks later, and brings a smile to our faces still. Well done to everyone involved, giving us a very entertaining night to remember for years to come. Thank you

Being a 39 Steps virgin not knowing anything about the play i entered with a open mind and found it to be absolutely brilliant, energetic and enjoyable. the whole experience was a thrilling adventure, One actor plays the hero, the actress plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements with, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, the whole shebang. It was amazing and very funny, the physicality of it was just to die for .... A must see!!!

I thought it was hilarious. It was very entertaining, i was on a class trip with 33 7th & 8th graders, the play is great for children and adults. I would see it again! The cast did a great job!

Absolutely Brilliant!!  A fantastic creation of Thriller converted to Hilarious Comedy, truely admirable.  Superb acting by all the characters (only 4, which makes it even better, how do they manage it?!).   We were not at all sure what to expect but were definitely not disappointed, and laughed the whole way through.
