I am not a regular theater goer but I love being entertained.... And without Doubt seeing the 39 Steps was the best 2 hours entertainment I have ever had in my 50 years. The acting was quite brilliant. The script was simply superb. I laughed till I could laugh no more. To the cast of 4 all I can say is you deserve the stage equivalent to an Oscar (what ever that is) BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT

I decided to watch "The 39 Steps" as part of my theatre break, and I am really glad that I did. It was hilarious and my sis and I laughed all the way through! It was amazing how 4 actors handled so many roles! 2 thumbs up to Andrew Alexander, Catherine Bailey, Stephen Critchlow & Ian Hughes! I would fly just from Singapore to London just to catch "The 39 Steps" again! Love it!

Like some of the other reviews, I attended this with some trepidation, but was really pleasantly surprised. Loved the show, laughed nearly all way through. The timings were spot on. The 4 cast members were fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone for a good night out.
A big thank you to the cast and crew for a thoroughly good show

First I was not sure if my friends and I made the right choice to see it. We try to go to theatre in London monthly. But to be honest it was the best theatre comedy I have seen in my life. It is simple hilarious. And it was not just me thinking that: in the audience were people from various age: teenagers, 25-40 but also a bit older. Also nice to see real actors who dont need much tools to perform on the stage. Really when you have time, just go and see it before it makes the rumour and you dont get any tickets while olympia going on.
Web Editor Note - Thank you Patricia, tickets are very much available throughout the Olympics and 39 is very proud to be playing alongside the games.

My friends and I attended this on Saturday 19 May with some curiosity, but we were instead handsomely rewarded. The cast were excellent, the script was slick and the surreal use of props bordered on genius. This is the funniest play I have seen bar none. If you get a chance to see this, don't miss it - it's an absolute gem!

We went to the Matinee on a Saturday afternoon and it was brilliant. Funny, witty, zany, comical and quality. All the cast were extremely versatile and flexible. It was both funny and straight and all 4 stars deserve credit and praise for an extremely enjoyable and thrilling afternoon at the theatre.

Brilliant performance, great cast and overall, hilarious. A lot of thought has obviously gone into this show, and made me laugh basically the whole way through. Very funny, a must-see.
