Murder most foul

I love Groupon (I may need an intervention soon).

A few months ago, I bought a mystery dinner for two for The Murder Mystery Company show at Heirloom.  Since Rob isn’t really into theatre, I took the teenager as my date, and WE HAD A BLAST!

The food was excellent, the salad was served on these awesome slabs of shale?, and the show was very entertaining.  It was different from the dinner theatre shows I have been to in the past. I went to a few where you just watched the play as you ate, and one in Chattanooga where the actors walked around and interacted with the guests, but at this show, you get to play detective, interviewing or even bribing the actors to discover the clues and solve the mystery! My daughter is usually a bit reserved, but she really delved into interrogating the suspects. Although we didn’t solve the crime, we thoroughly enjoyed the evening and plan on going again 🙂

The audience were all guests at a rich eccentric Hollywood producer’s dinner party, where he announced his own upcoming murder by someone in attendance. Hi-jinks ensued. Several audience members were pulled up to participate as characters and act out little skits;  it was all very fun and funny. I would definitely recommend this show to people who enjoy a silly comedy or just like to have some goofy fun–and don’t take themselves too seriously.
