The writeup indicated the leading lady has been in this play since 1987 -- it shows. She screamed her lines or threw them away like she was speed reading dialogue. She overacted and the idea that she teaches acting is horrifying. Richard Shoberg was the only actor with any ability, but what a disaster he's in -- like the lone... More

The reviews for this long running play are glowing yet we found this play to be disjointed. He did not flow. I felt as if there was no getting to know the characters or story line. We have seen many on and off Broadway shows and this one was the most disappointing. See it for yourself and decide. Maybe it... More

We arrived in NYC on Monday evening, (when most shows are dark) and went strait to the TKTS booth at Times Square to see if we could get anything. Unfortunately we listened to a nice young man who touted this show (kickbacks or commissions?). It was nearly empty in the house and the four live actors were competent but just... More

Not worth your money. I am glad I got this through a groupon because this wasn't worth the full price! Very small theatre but the play was sooo confusing! Please don't waste your time.

We went for the 11,000th show and nothing more. I read the reviews beforehand and as most of them are SO bad, had low expectations. I went because out of respect to the leading lady who has been playing the same part for 25 years. This is old school whodunnit. It is fast, loaded with clues, mad and impossible conversations,...

I went to this show last night. I liked it. I thought the actors were good and I liked the intimate atmosphere of the small theater. The story was light hearted and it was funny at times. It was not the disaster that others have said it was, not at all. I went into it though, knowing that it was... More

The guy outside the ticket booth was singing the praises about this show! He handed us a flier for it. Once we noticed that he didn't have fliers for others, we figured he was getting a kick back. We almost fell for it, but decided to take a minute and look it up on this app. That move saved us... More

We went to TKTS and decided to try an Off Broadway play. We frequently go in and see a show when we have a free day and TKTS is a great way to do it if you're not picky about what you want to see. Perfect Crime has been there for so long that we figured it had to be... More

If you are going to the theater to see Broadway spectacular, don't go here. If you want to see a quirky little comedy/drama characterized, in part, by its survival skills and available at the last minute, this is for you. I am a regular theater goer. I paid $400 to see WICKED. It wasn't worth it.This was worth the discounted... More
