The crime committed most often during mealtime is reaching over someone else to get the salt, which is why it's always a welcome distraction when a murder is committed instead. Enjoy a side of mystery with your meal with today's Groupon: for $40 you get dinner and two theater tickets to the Riverside Inn & Dinner Theatre in Cambridge Springs (an $83 value).
Ensconced on the banks of the idyllic French Creek for well over a century, the Riverside Inn & Dinner Theatre enchants starved show-goers with polished productions and hearty cuisine in an intimate 200-seat theater. Choose from an eclectic array of 12 performances that includes manic murder mysteries, toe-tapping musicals, and a cadre of gut-busting farces that may or may not include a posse of potty-mouthed pirates. Guffawing gullets choose between two or three of the night's delicious entrees and indulge in soup, salad, and tinny-voiced silverware reenactments of their favorite scenes. Satisfy secret desires to shout Olde English aphorisms by attending the Riverside's Medieval Feast, a raucous pageant of damsels, jesters, and jousters rife with hardy helpings of stone soup, stuffed chicken, and barbecued pork ribs.
Though not included in this Groupon, the Healing Waters Pub's elixirs egg on post-performance debates over themes, character motivations, and which actors wore wigs. Sleepy-eyed patrons can also opt to crash in one of the Riverside's charming guest rooms, which line the walls with Victorian-era antiques and artifacts while stripping them of modern appliances like TVs, telephones, and particle colliders.
