Set in Hollywood over a 70-year period, Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage's pseudo-biographical comedy By the Way, Meet Vera Stark follows the life of a headstrong African-American actress who begins a career in the 1930s, at a time when her only shot at success lay in stealing small scenes in big Hollywood blockbusters. Seventy years later, film buffs reflect on the life and legacy of the controversial star, whose eventual fame and fortune came at the price of perpetuating dangerous stereotypes. Nottage artfully blends comedy and social commentary for a thoroughly entertaining yet thought-provoking picture of the cultural climate that shaped Vera Stark. Clever and illuminating, this show draws on screwball films of the 1930s and uses today's fascination with celebrity and controversy to get to the truth behind the legend, and reflect on who she might have been if she'd lived in a different time.

The overall experience was amazing. When they say the the event starts from the moment you walk in, they really mean it. No one has done anything wrong and yet you start to be suspicious of everyone! You can feel everyone watching your every movement and you can't blame them because you're doing the same. The way the even flowed and went on was very well paced. And most of all the ending made sense. The food could stand to be better but It was quite interactive and entertaining. I'd highly recommend giving this a try.

Along with motive, means and opportunity, the plot meticulously unravels throughout the evening with a generous dose of humor, a lot of action and a series of clues and leads which take some real unsuspected turns.
Before the mystery comes to a dramatic conclusion, each of the guests are invited to hand in their own solutions.

Architecture and Decor
The restaurant thrives on nostalgia for by-gone days. The theme of the nostalgic architecture depicts the unfolding of North Texas History. For example, the historic exterior represents an ancient, rustic mill circa 1836. German carpenters connected the overhead hand-carved beams of the roof with wooden pegs made of old timbers. The stones are laid in the style of the 19th century masons. The downstairs dining area fireplace appears just as it was in 1936.
Paranormal Ghost Activity at The Old Mill Inn
During the 1936 Texas Centennial and World Fair, people would come from all over Texas to taste the famous Cobblestone bread that an old German woman known only as Hilda would freshly bake. To this day, people don't know if she fell... or was pushed into a vat of rising bread dough. One thing we do know is: her recipe has vanished forever along with that wonderful Cobblestone Bread that made Hilda so well-known back in the day. Hilda has been heard by kitchen staff clanging pots and pans in the Old Mill Kitchen. In the Attic, directly above the Murder Mystery Dining Room and leading to the haunted Old Mill Tower, restless foosteps have been heard late at night. Her apparition has been seen briefly by wait staff and customers alike as she walks the restaurant, offering her recipe... and sometimes even manifesting around the patio area, perhaps looking for her murderer amongst the guests.
The Old Mill Inn still stands as a unique, historic Texas landmark and a fascinating piece of Dallas history. An ideal setting for intrigue, cold-blooded murder, slippery red herrings, diabolical clues, and ingenious detective work!
