Review Highlights
You can tell that the same actress is been playing the same role for 30 years,...,not a compliment!

We were looking for a play or a musical, at the last minute. When in line, at the TKTS booth... read more

Not sure why this has been around 30 years

Terrific acting! The story though is uneven and not all of it fit - this is not Agatha Christie... read more

We were looking for a play or a musical, at the last minute. When in line, at the TKTS booth, somebody passed down a brochure for this play. It was cheap, we were four, so we bought the tickets. I am glad that I forgot...More

Terrific acting! The story though is uneven and not all of it fit - this is not Agatha Christie. I wouldn't see it a second time.

My girlfriend had heard about this from a podcast, we came to NYC for her birthday and decided to see the show. We had a fun time. The plot is complex, but if you follow the dialog, it all makes sense by the end of...More

There are lots of great discounts for this show on TDF/todaytix/TKTS booth, so it is certainly worth it at a lower price. There are not many thriller shows playing, so if you want a taste of a new genre of theatre, even if the production...More

This show is absolutely completely impossible to figure out. When you get home and do a google search for an explanation it then and only then will make any sense. It is ingeniously written in many regards but is completely unfair to the audience in...More

I'm embarrassed that I actually stayed to the end. This show was SO bad. I kept waiting for an "Ah ha!" moment of brilliance like at the end of "The Sixth Sense" when it all comes together, makes sense and my jaw hits the floor....More

We were deciding which show to see behind the red stairs. One of the guys standing there came up to us to talk to us about the shows. He really bigged up 'The perfect crime' but we weren't convinced. We were thinking of 'School of...More

This play was the only disappointing part of my first trip to NYC. The plot was very hard to follow; the dialogue was hurried and difficult to understand. The woman who plays the lead needs to take a breather from her part...she has been doing...More

I'd have to agree, this one you can skip. It's been playing for 30 years... no idea how. The theater was shabby and dirty, the acting wasn't bad but the play was bad. Lead actress talked super fast and hardly let her costars get their...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors
