The Murder Mystery Company forces diners to discover latent detective skills during an evening of faux fatalities that unfold over a three-course meal. Between an introductory soup du jour and a corn pudding dessert, guests nosh on rotating buffet fare such as carved roast beef au jus or grilled chicken breast in mushroom sauce served with long-cut green beans, twice-baked potatoes, and homemade yeast rolls. (Vegetarian options are available upon request.) The sudden death of one of the wait staff interrupts the feasting, and a hapless detective arrives to accuse one of the audience members. Tablemates work together to clear their good names and allocate blame on whoever took the last biscuit, slyly sleuthing and sorting out clues while scanning the room for guilty eyes and ready-to-flee hairpieces.
Though drinks are not included with this Groupon, investigators can indulge in numerous drink specials. Afterward, each participant will receive a photographic slide show of the performance to put in their case file or show at their next Clue fan-club meeting.
The Murder Mystery Company
It's not every day that a dinner with friends risks a murder accusation. That's a good possibility for the guests of The Murder Mystery Company, who find themselves in the middle of a investigation for which any one of them could stand accused by a hapless detective. During each interactive dinner, the company's troupe of professional improv actors ignites the dining room with entertaining outbursts and hilarious one-liners in an effort to divulge clues and redirect guilt. Meanwhile, guests work together to sniff out the real culprit, which is definitely not the school janitor in a mask. Birthday parties, bachelorette celebrations, and corporate events can also get in on the interactive action by scheduling a private murder-mystery dinner.
