Original cast member Catherine Russell, who has been with the show for 25 years (securing herself a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records), is part of a cast that also includes John Hillner, George McDaniel, Patrick Robustelli and Richard Shoberg.

"We've had such terrific audiences over the past 25 years," Russell said in a statement. "They figure out the clues, laugh along at the jokes and have helped make the show a New York institution."

The 7 PM performance is followed by a special anniversary party with a dinner and open bar, which the entire audience is invited to attend.

According to the producers, Perfect Crime has been modernized over the years. The set now includes a flat screen TV, references to "The Phil Donahue Show" were changed to Oprah and then "the morning shows"; and a reference to a character's net worth has increased from $1 million to $50 million, and now to $600 million.

Perfect Crime opened as an Equity Showcase in 1987. It is the longest-running play in the history of New York theatre.

Tickets for Perfect Crime can be purchased by visiting Ticketmaster or by calling (212) 307-4100. The Snapple Theater Center is located at 210 West 50th Street at Broadway.
