There are 4 actors. They all are terrific in their characters. Good story. Fast moving, so you have to pay attention to every word or you miss the plot.

Well past its sell by date. Difficult to find anything good or positive to say about this play. Would be better off watching paint dry. Honest guys- is this the best you can do?

I can't believe this show keeps going. How sad that some unsuspecting souls wander into this theater expecting to be entertained. It is positively dreadful in every respect. I think it should be against the law to subject people to this. They should be ashamed to take money for the tickets!!!!

Loved The Perfect Crime! Small intimate theater, funny, and yet suspenseful and forces you to think a little. We talked about it for several hours while figuring out all the angles during dinner. Great way to experience NY theater without the big price-tag!

we couldn't get TKTS to a show that we wanted and thought we would give this show a look. It's been around 30+ years. Although the show has been updated, and the actors did a decent job, it was just not very good. Don't waste your money. Go shopping

This is a small theater, (maybe an old grammar school auditorium??) I went at the last minute, (49$ TKTS booth ticket), and I really enjoyed myself! I got a center, first front row seat. I had my feet on the stage! Lead actress is a powerhouse of Witchy-tornado-SNOB...so hilarious! The 4 person cast is simply amazing! Good story with a... More

Worst play I have seen, ever. More than half the audience walked out at the intermission. I was jealous of the folks on either side who fell asleep. Spare yourself, and watch out for hustlers near the tiks booth who recommend this play. Fairly sure they get a cut off the sales.

My wife likes murder mysteries and we both enjoyed this play. The theater was intimate and the acting was good. The plot kept you guessing on the outcome.

To see an actress play the SAME ROLE for 26+ YEARS is interesting from an historical aspect BUT to understand everything the bar hands out an "answer sheet" at the end of the play. THAT, in itself, tells you a lot. GET THE FREE HANDOUT! Acting 4/5 Storyline/writing 1/5 Scenery 3/5 Works out to 2/5

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.

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.
