Perfect Crime is a funny, sexy thriller about three psychiatrists, a detective, a crazy patient and at least one dead body. A man is murdered -- maybe. Did his wife kill him? The detective investigating the case thinks so - until he starts to fall in love with her and the husband mysteriously reappears.
The New York Times calls Perfect Crime "an urban legend... a crackling thriller." The New Yorker calls it "a cunning little whodunit" and UPI says "If Harold Pinter, Tennessee Williams and Agatha Christie ever sat around a bar one night and said 'Let's write a murder mystery,' they might have come up with Perfect Crime."
"Perfect Crime is something of a phenomenon," says Fox Five News. Now in its 24th year, Perfect Crime "may well outdistance The Mousetrap" says WNEW. What is the perfect crime? Come and see for yourself!
Perfect Crime is the longest running play on or Off-Broadway - ever. Its star, Catherine Russell, is known as the "Cal Ripkin of Broadway" because she has missed only four performances in over 22 years - all for her siblings' weddings.
