perfect-crime.JPGNew York, N.Y. - The longest-running play in New York City history will reach its historic 10,000th performance on September 25, 2011. Perfect Crime, Warren Manzi's romantic and comedic thriller that has enthralled and intrigued local and international audiences since 1987, will celebrate its milestone 10,000th performance with an early curtain and a post-performance party to which the entire audience is invited. Tickets for the 7pm performance, which include admission to the post-show celebration featuring dinner and an open bar, are available by calling the box office at (212) 921-7862, by logging onto or by visiting the Snapple Theater Center at 210 West 50th Street.  Tickets are priced $51 - $61. Leading lady Catherine Russell, who has starred in the show since its first performance, has never taken a sick day or vacation day in the past 24 years, a feat which recently landed her in the Guinness Book of World Records.  Russell's incredible streak has been featured on Entertainment Tonight, The Today Show and Good Morning America and in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Daily News and numerous other publications including People, which dubbed her "The Cal Ripken of Broadway". Since Perfect Crime opened in 1987, Russell has spent over two years of her life (nearly 17,000 hours) onstage.  She has shot 89 different men and kissed 57 others.  Nearly 83,000 bullets have been fired onstage and over 5,000 prop coffee cakes have been eaten.  Amazingly, the show has employed 237 actors during its 24-year existence. The cast of Perfect Crime also includes John Hillner (Georges in the 2004 Broadway revival of La Cage Aux Folles; Broadway's Mamma Mia!, Company, Crazy For You, Woman of the Year, They're Playing Our Song, Little Me, Footloose, Zorba, Big: the musical); television veteran George McDaniel (Hill Street Blues, Little House on the Prairie, Dallas, Cagney & Lacey, Mama's Family, Saved By The Bell, ER, The West Wing); Patrick Robustelli (Guardian Star); and Richard Shoberg, who played Tom Cudahy on ABC's All My Children for 24 years.  Perfect Crime is directed by Jeffrey Hyatt.
