    More Accolades for The 39 Steps in Palm Springs!!

    Even more positive reviews continue to pour in for our production of The 39 Steps!

    The Desert Local News said "the audience roars its approval with howls of laughter throughout giving the cast a much deserved, standing ovation at the curtain call."

    And "Let’s start with Jeffery Cannata as Hannay, the handsome, dashing, visitor from Canada who is wrongly accused of murder and is on the run from Scotland Yard... in Cannata’s talented hands it’s all just a piece of cake. Can he and will he save the day, foil the spies and win the girl? You bet he will, and he does it with style, wry wit, and grace."

    You can read the entire review here.

    Meanwhile, The Desert Sun calls our production of The 39 Steps "the best show I’ve seen from that company"

    And "the camp comedy is pulled off with sophisticated acting."

    Read that review at the bottom of the page here.


    We resume performances with 2 shows tomorrow, starting our final week of the run!  Get tickets while you still can to see the show that everyone seems to love!

    The 39 Steps Moves to Palm Springs, Continues Critical Acclaim!

    Our critically lauded production of The 39 Steps made the big move to Palm Springs last week, and opened to enthusiastic audiences and even more positive reviews.

    The Coachella Valley Independent raved, "The 39 Steps is a must-see, regardless of wet weather or any other excuse."

    "It’s an homage to Hitchcock, a murder-mystery that paradoxically rocks you with laughter and acting brilliance."

    "An unforgettable demonstration of acting chops by brilliant thespians. Their energy alone is breath-taking."

    "A display of pure talent is always exciting, and it will raise your respect for the profession to see this show."

    With praise that, how can you miss it?  The entire glowing review can be read here, and you can grab tickets for our remaining 7 performances here.

    Jeff Cannata as Detective Fleming on FOX's Rake

    My episode of Rake premiered tonight on FOX.  Hope you got a chance to see it.  As Detective Fleming, I confronted, interrogated, chased down, and apprehended the fleeing Michael Imperioli.  It was a fun scene - hopefully the fine folks at Rake will bring my character back in future episodes. :)

    Here are a couple of stills from the episode, in case you missed it:
