The Mystery Café’s current show, Comic Book Capers, gives regular citizens a window into the crime-fighting world as an unknown evildoer liquidates the superpowers of Stupor Man, Wonder Bra Woman, and the Incredible Hunk. Though the destruction of the universe seems imminent, hope glimmers after a pet-store clerk contracts rabies from a dog and transforms into a new hero, Power Poodle. Currently, performances are scheduled to take place at the Milano Inn, though the location of future performances may vary. See the schedule for the dates, times, and locations of upcoming performances.<p>

About The Mystery Café of Indianapolis
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. Guest sleuths enter the dining hall and have the option to undertake a fictional identity to interact with the cast of professional performers. Upon finding their seats, diners become engrossed in a comedic play in which voluntary participants receive a line to read and a high-speed jetpack to escape with should suspicion fall on them. While putting crime-fighting powers to the test in hopes of not only solving the mystery but also earning the night's grand prize, diners put an end to hunger with savory minestrone, a tossed salad, a choice of lasagna, shells florentine, chicken parmesan, or sausage cannelloni, and spumoni for dessert.
