A awesome Anniversary dinner... – I wanted to do something fun for our 7th year wedding anniversay and I came across this when I googled dinner shows. It showed it was sold out on the website but I called and spoke with Kim and he got our party of 6 in with no problem. We weren't to sure how it was going to be but we were all up for an exciting night and that is what it was. We all had such a blast! The cast gets the crowd involved and sometime's the crowd is funnier than the cast. It was a great dinner ( more like a 4 course meal). We have all been bragging about it to our friends and family and we can't wait to go again!! Thanks, you didn't let us down.
Most Reviews are written by A-holes – If you are wondering if you should go see a show here, then I have one thing to say..... DO IT! It is an extremely fun and interactive show that will certainly give you your money's worth. Don't go with the other reviews on this site, I am sure that they are the same people that blast everything online. This show IS for adults. You MUST have a sense of humor and you can't be shy about participating. Plain and Simple.......the other reviewers suck, this show rocks, and I guarantee it will be memorable. I have taken my employees to see each show and have never been let down by the cast and crew. 5 STARS!
Sadly disappointed – I did not enjoy the theater. I was very disappointed in the constant innuendo's and sexual implications throughout the play. It was embarassing that adults would act like this and that people would cheer it on. I, along with my party of 6, was quite embarassed. I didn't appreciate the perverted ways that the "whip" was used by one of the main actors (between actors and audience members) as well as the impression of the pole dancing, among many other remarks and actions. The only words I can think of is very disappointing.
Fun filled evening of MYSTERY, MURDER, and DINNER. – Dramatic improvements!!! They moved to a new location and the food is SO MUCH BETTER! We took our daughter for her 14th birthday and it was a lot of fun. They said the show was PG-13, so I was a little worried. It was perfect though; she had a blast and so did we! The actors interact with the audience and you really feel like a part of the show. It was very funny, and the acting was surprisingly good! I haven't seen my mom laugh so hard in years! :o) The whole family had fun and we look forward to returning to see one of the other shows that they offer.
I actually enjoyed it – I attended this with a group of people for a birthday party. I went to one of these a few years ago, I do not think it was this one but I did not really like the show back then. This time around it was funny. They really tried to have the audience participate. I thought all the actors were hilarious especially Jim (who played the drag queen) and there is an actress in this-Kim Manning- who has been in a kids movie, my friend recognized her. The food is not top-rated cuisine you do not go for that but overall I thought it was funny.
Would not recommend – We didn't have a horrible time but I could've done without going. Wasn't impressed with the staff, the waitress was nice but the actors gave us a hard time when asking for extras (butter, sour cream). The man who answered the phone with an English accent, was rude to us. The acting was silly, somewhat fun but not worth the time. All and all, I have to say I was a bit disappointed. For the price, I expected to be treated better.
Really, truly bad – I took my husband there for his birthday. What a horrible way to celebrate anything. The "play" was really bad--no plot and absolutely no mystery. They made a big deal about solving the mystery and promised a gift to the winner. The gift was a stainless travel mug. They also begged for tips (part of the "script"). UGH.
Dinner is $45...consisted of dry, hard chicken with fake lemon sauce, undercooked brocolli and carrot coins (plain) and baked potato. Oh, there was 1/4 cup of iceberg lettuce for salad. Dry chocolate cake for "dessert".
What a ripoff and dissapointment. Don't go!!
