On television, criminal investigators are slick and relentless, which explains why most kids want to grow up to be cops, actors, or a pair of sunglasses. Shine like a snooping star with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
$35 for a murder-mystery dinner in Blackhawk on Thursday, June 28 (a $100 value)
- Reserved, best-available seating
- Dinner with tossed salad, chicken-alfredo or vegetarian lasagna, seasonal vegetables, and wine or iced tea<p>
$20 for a murder-mystery show premier package at Tommy T’s Comedy & Steakhouse on Thursday, July 12 (a $50 value)
- Reserved, preferred seating
- Post-show meet-and-greet with the cast<p>
At 7 p.m., the curtain opens on five friends who have each received a strange letter to meet at Tommy T’s theater or on the grounds of the Blackhawk Country Club. When one of them ends up dead, the hilarity of an improv show combines with the sleuthing of a whodunit, as audience members step up to help find the culprit.
For the show at Tommy T’s, customers should arrive by 6:30 p.m. to take their seats. Tommy T’s two-item-minimum policy will be waived for Groupon customers, though they are welcome to order from the bar and dinner menu throughout the show.<p>
Imagine Affairs Murder Mystery
Imagine Affairs revitalizes the classic murder-mystery template with current-day touches: Scenarios reference the modern nightclub in which the audience and actors gather, and cases are cracked by CSI-style cops, not Holmesian detectives or omniscient robots. Meanwhile, the actors leaven the dire situation with doses of improv comedy and audience interaction, which lets guests become as entangled in plot twists as they want.
