I decided to take in a show while I was on one of my many trips to NY. I saw that this show, Perfect Crime, had been running for years, so I thought that it had to be good and I liked the title. My son, a New Yorker, told me not to go see it, that it would not... More

The play was recommended by some persons at the Tickts booth at Times Square. It was the worst play I've ever seen in my life. It was just waste of time and money.

They apparently run this play since decades, and the main actress has played it over 4700 times. OK. What we can see today seems quite outdated indeed: old actors playing parts which should be played by young actors, in a stuffy set which has seen better days. Also, the plot is quite complex, and we only started to properly understand... More

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!
