OFF-BROADWAY "PERFECT CRIME" TURNS 24, ORIGINAL STAR STILL GOING STRONG
The long-running Off-Broadway play Perfect Crime has turned 24. On Monday, April 18, 2011, the show celebrated 24 years since it first premiered on April 18, 1987. The show's original star, Catherine Russell, continues with the Off-Broadway production and has only missed four performances since opening night, landing her in the Guinness Book of World Records.
With nearly 10,000 performances, this Off-Broadway mystery thriller play continues in the heart of Times Square in New York City.
Perfect Crime goes
well beyond traditional mystery play. It is a sexy, compelling
thriller, with well-timed surprises and laughs that relieve a growing
dramatic tension. The main character is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist
accused of bumping off her wealthy British husband.
The play is set in an affluent Connecticut town where this suspected murderess conducts her practice out of her secluded mansion. The handsome detective assigned to the case must overcome his own love-interest in the wife as he seeks to discover who murdered the husband, if indeed he was murdered at all.
