Life is full of unanswered questions, such as who really built the pyramids, where swiss cheese gets its holes, and what the J in Michael J. Fox stands for. Get to the bottom of a solvable mystery with today's Groupon: for $29, you get one ticket to dinner and a whodunit performance by The Murder Mystery Company at Woody's Diner in Royal Oak, Michigan (a $60 value). Today's deal is good for any date, availability pending, on the schedule.
The Murder Mystery Company challenges detective skills and untested telepathic abilities with an up-to-two-hour murder-mystery dinner show of mock murder and faux fatalities unfolding during a three-course meal. In between a salad starter and mysterious dessert ending, guests nosh on their choice of a half slab of baby-back ribs, a plate of New Orleans pasta or fettuccine alfredo, garlic-lime chicken, or sirloin steak. The comic mystery begins with a murder, and is followed by a detective arriving on the scene to seek out the perpetrator in the audience. Work with tablemates to clear your good name and your plate, both of which have the potential to go down in murder-mystery history.
Although drinks are not included with the value of this Groupon, drink specials are available during the show. Additionally, all patrons receive a photo slideshow from the performance to fondly remember the light-hearted murderous evening. Guests are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes before showtime.
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.
