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 The strange combination of soap opera acting in a darkly psychologically thriller that's a full 30 years out of date is hauntingly bizarre.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.

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

Picked up some last minute tickets from TKTS on Times Square. Still a bit pricey but we did get front row seats - and it felt like we were a part of the play! For a cast of only four people, it was brilliant. Strong performers including the formidable Cathy Russell (over 11,000 performances by this one woman!) and a... More

Not our cup of tea. The plot did have a lot of twists and turns with a better ending but it was slow in the beginning and did not hold our attention. The actors are former soap opera stars and although belivable in character I would have preferred a musical. The sales people paid a commission to get people in... More

I have been going to see plays for many years and this isTHE worst EVER. For starters the building had an awful smell. The "stage" was on 4 flights of stairs up. There were only about 30 people there this past Saturday for the 8PM show! The actors were terrible. The female lead who has only missed 4 performances in... More
