Act One- "The 39 Steps: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry, based on the film by Alfred Hitchock, with original music by Ed Rosenblatt is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc (www.playscripts.com). The 39 Steps by Alfred Hitchcock is a masterful blend of horror, comedy and romance; the movie is considered the template for the more well-known North by Northwest. It was the second in a series of films that established Hitchcocks reputation as a master of thrillers, skillfully addressing the great perils, intrigues, and romance of modern times. Joe Landry has redramatized the movie, incorporating elements from other sources including the original novel on which the film was based, later versions of the story as a radio show, and his own imaginative reinvention to raise up the presence of an authentically vintage Hitchcock of the 1920s and 30s, complete with live sound effects and commercial jingles.
Act Two- To The Dogs, the world premiere of an original vintage Halloween radio play by Bill Arnold, a member of the Herstory Theater Company. To The Dogs is a thriller in the style of a vintage live radio show, but with a more modern sensibility and sense of humor. The cast of HITCHCOCK AND HORROR features Bill Arnold, Chris Bushey, Rayah Martin, Steve OBrien, Jomarie Pipolo, and Virginia Wolf with Foley Artist- Matt Stevens.

Chances are you have not seen the 1937 play "Parfumerie", by Miklós László, but chances are excellent you know the story, since the play inspired not just one but two classic movies: Ernst Lubitsch's "The Shop Around the Corner" starring Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullivan, and Nora Ephron's "You've Got Mail" with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. The tale of two co-workers who share their mutual antipathy with secret correspondents who turn out to be well, you know the rest... was also transformed into an under-appreciated 1963 Broadway musical, "She Loves Me", with lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock, just one year before the two of them set an entire shtetl dancing the high-steppe in Fiddler on the Roof.
"She Loves Me" recently revived again on Broadway to rave reviews was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964. The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is set in a 1930's European perfumery and this Christmas show, is sure to win your heart!
