Started in Boston in 1990 and an Indianapolis staple since 1992, the Mystery Café delights audiences with an engaging dinner-show and four-course Italian dinner. Diners enter the dining hall and undertake an optional fictional identity to interact with the professional cast. Upon finding their seats, diners become engrossed in a comedic play in which voluntary participants are given a line to read and a high-speed jetpack to escape with should they be found to be the murderer. Mystery Café’s current show, BATS: The Non-Musical guides guests through the supernatural murder of a human guest at an annual vampire ball, which is populated by A-list fiends such as Whoopi Ghoulberg, Werewolf Blitzer, and Teeth Richards. While sleuthing the situation in hopes of not only uncovering the undead culprit but also earning the night’s grand prize, diners put an end to hunger with a meal of four courses served after each act, including savory minestrone, a tossed salad, a choice of lasagna, shells florentine, chicken parmigiana, or sausage cannelloni and spumoni for dessert.
