The best part about this play was the theatre. Very quaint. I would say the play was okay. I had a hard time following who did what and all the relationships. At the end I was confused and who really did the crime. Our show was not sold out and I see why. The actors and actresses put ther heart... More

This was recommended by the tckts people in Times Square. I know it's their job to get tickets sold but this was bad. We were 8 people and not one of us liked it. Of the few people that were at the show, some left at intermission.

How can anyone justify charging for this play. My husband and I tried really hard to follow the plot and as other writers have written, left not understanding who did it, or why. The acting is just terrible. We tried really hard to like the characters but there is nothing likeable in them as characters or in the 'acting' they... More

I do not consider Perfect Crime boring at all. I think it is intriguing and interesting. I recommend that if you plan to see it, you read the summary first so that you can understand it from the beginning. Catherine Russell, the lead actress, is outstanding. The theatre is small but really nice. I truly enjoyed it.

This play was so confusing and boring at that. It does not keep your attention and many times I felt my mind wandering. Even if you pay attention you will still leave confused. It is a murder mystery and in the end we still don't know who did it!! I need to search online to find out. I agree with... More

I know I posted this once before, Stan the tour guide, but it doesn't seem to have taken, I vaguely remember our conversation on the street, but I know you must have misinterpreted certain points, I never said or implied that I wrote, or had anything to do with producing the longest running play in New York City history, PERFECT...

Don`t do it! This rubbish is a perfect crime on your wallet! We got talked into it by a guy from TKTS and if they made their money like this for the last 27 years, it's no wonder that this is the longest running play... AND the biggest rip off!

My fiance had never been to a Broadway show I found this, plus the tickets were cheap! When we got there, it was an old building. The theatre seating area was small. And the stage was small. It was sooo dragging that my fiance starting nodding off and falling asleep. The actors were oustanding but it was just dragging. I... More

We signed up for a special offer to see the play for USD 30. The Snapple Theater turned out to be a nice mini theatre that could probably fit 250 at full capacity. But there were only a straggle of a dozen odd people present. All the action takes place in one single setting. Acting was superb and the dialogue... More

My husband bought these tickets for our anniversary thinking that it was a broadway play (he's never been). Unfortunately he was very mistaken. We went and really tried to like it but it's a very confusing play and the actors aren't all that great. We ended up leaving at intermission because neither of us knew what was going on and... More
