Beer, wine and comedy at a cheap price? No wonder so many people pack Chelsea’s Magnet Theater daily. Shows here run the gamut from long form improv and scripted sketch comedy to storytelling and a variety of free performance opportunities for anyone willing to get on stage. Shows at the Magnet never seem to top $10, and are often free. The 70-odd seats don’t make for a very big venue, but that also means there isn't a bad spot in the house, and you’ll have a perfect sightline the next time some celebrity drops in to perform. Classes in improv, storytelling and comedy writing are also offered at the Training Center Studio, one block north. If you’re looking for a cheap laugh, or want to inspire it in others, the Magnet is a great place to start.

Written by Warran Manzi, Perfect Crime has compelled and delighted audiences for 23 years with its thrilling plot and mysterious characters, earning the impressive distinction as the longest-running non-musical play in New York theater history. Actress Catherine Russell's juggernaut run in the lead role of Margaret Brent stretches back to the original performance in 1987, earning her the moniker “the Cal Ripken of Broadway.” Sit and spectate as she plays a Harvard-educated psychiatrist charged with killing her affluent British husband over and over for the last 23 years. The play also stars Saved by the Bell's George McDaniel as a deranged patient and All My Children's Richard Shoberg as the detective trying to figure out who committed murder and who stole his lip balm before the show.
