The Dinner Detective
Running year-round, The Dinner Detective thrusts guests into a mirthful murder mystery where any of their fellow diners could be responsible for the evening’s dastardly events. A troupe of improv actors convincingly blends into the crowd, making it difficult to determine who is and isn’t a part of the show. While feasting on such entrees as chipotle-roasted pork tenderloin and tropical chicken confit, show-goers scan their eyes throughout the dining room and attempt to suss out the identity of the killer.

Plaid Tidings, the holiday-themed follow-up to Forever Plaid, continues a musical tribute to the clean-cut boy bands of the '50s and '60s. The Plaids return from the afterlife to fulfill Rosemary Clooney’s mission to reignite the spirit of the season with a night of holiday medleys and a condensed, three-minute version of the Ed Sullivan Christmas special.

Midtown Arts Center
You never know who might be in the audience at Midtown Arts Center—it could be Broadway devotees taking in a performance of Sweeney Todd, families watching The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, or comedy fans chuckling to Monty Python's Spamalot. The center is able to support such a diverse program thanks to a pair of theaters, a 200-seat auditorium that hosts kids musical-theatre classes and the Young Audience Series, and a 236-seat dinner theater. In the latter, servers present gourmet meals from a menu that includes blueberry baked brie, braised pork shanks, and even creme brûlée. Before dinner, guests can hang out at the full bar and lobby, beautifully decorated spaces that perfectly complement a 200-seat ballroom that can be reserved for weddings or massive games of musical chairs.
