High School dramas are better

Poorly written. Bad acting. You keep expecting it to get better. It doesn't. Do not waste your time or money. I was very disappointed.

DO NOT waste your time and money on this play. The acting is bad and rushed, the plot is completely incoherent, and the set is cheap and outdated. You will leave confused and angry at your decision to see this play. This so-called show should really be stopped!! I feel sorry for everyone involved in making it. DO NOT SEE... More

Grabbed discount tickets from the tkts site. Was unable to get tix for any of my first 4 choices so picked this based on the description provided by a booklet passed out while I was in line. If you want to be able to say that you've seen a Guiness World Record being beat, which the female lead does nightly... More

Impossible to explain how terrible this is . . . both somehow it worth seeing. The strange combination of soap opera acting in a darkly psychologically thriller that's a full 30 years out of date is hauntingly bizarre. We all agreed that it was truly awful, but had no regrets. Epically, fabulously bad.

Just came home from seeing a Perfect Crime. There was so much rhetoric and phone conversations, I'm still trying to figure out this play. The lead doesn't breath between sentences or let anyone finish before she cuts them off and finishes her sentences. I've seen a lot if plays on Broadway, I've never left a play so confused, ever. Not... More

I feel sorry for the actors; they were fine. However, the story and plot are terrible. Confusing and boring.

Bought tickets to this from TKTS after it was recommended by someone who just "happened" to be walking by. Apparently this has been running for 25+ years but it seems that the cast lost interest 24 years ago. Poor acting, dry uninteresting plot, overall just plain bad. Pretty sure that the UN has banned people attending this thing because it... More

Wanting to see a non-musical show in New York, we had the misfortune of attending this "play". If you are thinking to yourself, "it can't be that bad", think again! The plot was twisted, the actors rushed through the play, and it was just "bad". We will have long lasting memories of the worst play we have ever seen. We... More

I give credit to anyone that can get up and perform in front of a crowd of people since that is something I can not do. That is why I gave it a poor. Sadly I think this show has run it's course over the last 27 years. The 2 big highlights for me was the part of the detective... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
