Well acted and well produced. I did not find the substance all that interesting and found it hard to follow. If you are a mystery fan, this may really be the play for you.

Quotes & Highlights

“Wonderfully puzzling! A crackling thriller! Sends electric thrills up the spine!" —The New York Times
“A cunning little whodunit” —The New Yorker
“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.” —UPI


Warren Manzi’s Perfect Crime is a sexy, funny and fast-paced thriller that makes for a great night of whodunit. The longest-running play in NYC history, it tells the story of psychiatrist and potential cold-blooded killer Margaret Brent, her rich husband, a deranged patient, and the handsome detective who’s falling in love with her. Perfect Crime features Catherine Russell, the “Cal Ripken of Broadway,” Richard Shoberg (Tom Cudahy on All My Children), John Hillner (star of the Tony-winning Broadway revival of La Cages Aux Folles), TV veteran George McDaniel (The West Wing, ER, Saved by the Bell), David Butler, Hugh Hysell and Patrick Robustelli, a well-known Broadway restaurateur making his debut on video.
