Drop Dead Perfect follows the outrageous downward spiral of wealthy and eccentric mistress Idris Seabright, played by Quinton. A visit from a mysterious stranger resembling her long-lost love prompts her to become unhinged; comic mayhem ensues.

"She’s a gargoyle of a gal who is murderously psychotic. I can bring so much to the role," commented the Drama Desk-winning actor in a press statement. Quinton has appeared in more than 75 productions from the Ridiculous Theatrical Company, where he has worked as an actor, director and costume designer.

Joining Quinton, the cast  of Drop Dead Perfect is made up of Jason Cruz, Jason Edward Cook and Timothy C. Goodwin. The 90-minute comedy is produced by Penguin Rep Theatre, Morton Wolkowitz, Barbara Freitag and Jamie deRoy.
