We went to this because of the small venue and advertising that it's the "longest running show in NYC." Well, if that's true, it's a crime. The only decent actor was the guy who played the detective. The woman who plays the lead has been in this role since it's inception. The fact that she hasn't wanted to wander out... More

And it's very disappointing that TKTS is still handling tickets for this show. The Perfect Crime is that they charge for this show. The leading lady has played this role for 29 years. You'd think by now she'd have learned how to act. She was entirely dreadful, from her over-fast delivery to her complete inability to emote anything. The plot... More

My husband and I bought tickets last night at the discount booth in TSq. We had already seen a few amazing shows but not a play and was told by a woman at the booth this play was amazing and had been running for nearly 30 years so thought 'must be good' The first impression of the theatre itself was...

Horrible, fell asleep. Don't know how this show remains. I feel that my money was stolen. Do not waste your money here

How did it happened that this show is running for almost 30 years???? Weak plot (and hard to follow) and...whatever....go anywhere else!

Theater is old, falling apart. Acting is not good & story is hard to follow. Wish I could get my money back! Go see a Broadway show for just a bit more money yet SO much better!

Where do I start!!! First, the show needs to end. It has well over ran it's time. The guy that played on All My Children was great and I am really confused why he is doing this one of all that are playing. The theatre is old and up 4 flights of stairs. The seats have been painted red and... More

Not as bad as all the other people who gave it such a poor rating. We got the tickets pretty cheap and said why not. If you are expecting Wicked or Cats then this is not for you. It wasn't bad, we enjoyed the night out. Kept us entertained and we played along trying to figure out what was going... More

Visiting New York for the first time we decided to see a Broadway show. After queuing an hour at the discount ticket centre we were recommended this show so $190 got us 4 tickets to this play. Over the years we've seen so many plays in London, Manchester as well as many regional and school plays, a show on Broadway... More

Wanted to see a Broadway show while on holiday in New York. Wish I'd read the reviews rather than believed the write ups. This was, by far, the worst play I've ever seen. No redeeming factors. The actors seemed to be sleepwalking through the awful script. Bafflingly bad experience. Don't let anyone sell you a ticket to see this, no... More

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.
