The theatrical crime can be any type of crime committed by an offender well-known by the press in which said offender follows a pattern characterized mainly by its eccentricity. The term was coined based on the idea that the criminal is the main character, while police officers are considered the supporting characters or antagonists and the crime itself is an act repeated in a play made to entertain the media and ordinary civilians, who are the audience.
