This is your chance to enjoy great-tasting suspense and laugh-a-minute entertainment as you immerse yourself in a Chicago murder mystery experience to remember!
Be prepared to take an active part in this show as it unfolds around you and remember everyone’s a suspect – even you! If you would rather just watch the entertainment, there is no obligation to take the stage or perform. You’ll be able to participate at the level to which you feel comfortable. The show is performed by trained improvisers from all over the country with a pedigree that includes the Chicago Improv Festival, the Los Angeles Improv Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and many more.
Shows are performed all year round but can be booked out up to 8 weeks in advance. Friday shows start at 7:00 and Saturday shows start at 6:15pm.
The evening comprises a four-course sit-down dinner in which each guest is allowed to choose their own entree. In between each course of the meal, a part of the show unfolds. The show is an interactive and improvised comedic murder mystery set in the present day. None of the performers are dressed in costume, but instead are dressed just like everyone else; therefore you do not know who is a part of the show and who isn’t.
The show takes place throughout the entire room, and performers may actually be seated at your table, so part of the fun from the beginning is trying to figure out who’s involved in the crime and who’s not. Throughout the night, murders and mayhem will occur, hidden clues will come forth and Detectives will help everyone try to solve the crime. At the end of the evening, a prize package is awarded to the Top Sleuth who comes closest to solving the crime
