A secluded mansion. A would-be murderess. The perfect crime. Margaret Brent is an accomplished Connecticut psychiatrist-and potential cold-blooded killer. When her wealthy husband turns up dead, she gets caught in the middle of a terrifying game of cat and mouse with a deranged patient and the handsome but duplicitous investigator assigned to the case. Perfect Crime has played over 9,000 performances since opening on April 18, 1987. It has been featured in every major New York publication as well as in People magazine and on Entertainment Tonight and The Today Show.
Written by Warren Manzi and directed by Jeffrey Hyatt, the cast of Perfect Crime also includes Catherine Russell, who has starred in the show since its first performance, played all but four of its performances and has been inducted into The Guinness Book of World Records for this feat; Patrick Robustelli (Guardian Star); Rob Sedgwick (Major Barbara at The Irish Repertory Theater, Enemies at The Williamstown Theater Festival) and Richard Shoberg (24 years as Tom Cudahy on ABC's All My Children).
