Houston's Alley Theatre has canceled its remaining performances of Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps after being severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey. According to the theater, the decision has been made "in order to keep our patrons, staff, and artists safe."

"Alley's Neuhaus Theatre, Mitchell Lobby, and basement dressing rooms suffered the most damage, with water rising past the high water mark of 2001's Tropical Storm Allison," said a statement from the theater. The Hubbard Theatre and the Long Lobby remain in tact without any damage.

All electricity, email servers, and phone lines at the theater remain offline. The theater will allow patrons exchange their existing tickets for a future Hubbard Theatre production at no additional charge, request a refund, or donate the value of the tickets to the Theatre. Ticket holders should email [email protected] The Box Office staff will return messages when normal operations resume, as the offices and box office are closed because there is no electrical power in the building.

Artistic director Gregory Boyd and managing director Dean Gladden will release further information about the season at a later date.

While it is not possible to donate directly to Alley Theatre at this time, more information can be found here.
