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 takes place in the home of a wealthy psychiatrist, Margaret Brent, who is accused of murdering her husband. The handsome detective thinks he has it all figured out, but her husband's murder is only the beginning in what may just be the perfect crime.


Perfect Crime is the perfect show for fans of Law & Order, CSI, Sherlock, Gone Girl, Only Murders in the Building, and Hitchcock films!


With Manzi's infamous twists and turns some audience members feel a little puzzled at the end of the show. To help with this we've created an answer key, but be warned, reading this ahead of time will spoil some of the plot points.
