Do not waste your money....,
Jan 17, 2014
reviewer: from New York, New York
I selected this play because it was inexpensive. It was a gift from my family who took me. I do not understand how this play is still running after 26 years. It is convoluted and the script is in need of a re=write to clarify many elements. The 3 men were fine, but the lead actress was horrible. I don't say this lightly, but as an actor myself, I cannot imagine how this person got this job!!! She had a blinking/eye squeezing problem, she steam rolled over everyone's lines, acted with NO feeling at anytime and for the love of God - when the phone rings, or when you are dialing it, PLEASE wait to connect to the imaginary person!!!!!! I was so excited to see this, what a disappointment...

So bad it's bad,

Got tricked into going to this turkey by the discount ticket kiosk girl who said it was like a cross between CSI and a horror movie. Well, it was a horror. Over acted, under written and poorly directed, this play is total amateur hour that would put a high school group to shame.

They should pay the audience for sitting thru this!,

Waste of time and money, almost fell asleep during this. It obviously has not gotten any better than any of the past reviews indicate. Over understatement! The story is hard to follow as was much of the dialogue hard to understand, actors slur their words too much. We sat in second row on a recent trip to NY, and the lead actress seems to be rather old looking...or had a bad make up job..or both. I clapped at the end not because I liked the show it was becuase I was glad it was over and me and my friends could escape. We walked back to our hotel speechless at such a waste of money, Time for a new cast or to retire this show.I have seem high school students put on better shows.

Unwitting victims . . .,

. . . of the perfect crime: we actually paid money to see this excuse for drama. Was the cast on drugs or just as numb as the audience? We should have found a painting project and watched the paint dry.

Dont bother. Catherine Russell has done it so often, she starts her lines before the previous actor has finished talking. Very small, old theater with noise and vibrations from outside. Its a "Perfect Crime" alright because the plot is so convoluted that its impossible to follow. There were only about 40 other suckers in the audience, so at least we had good seats. No lineups for washroom or at the bar. Stay away.
