You can help solve a shocking murder mystery in this fun, crowd-pleasing whodunnit full of war-weary G.I.s, lusty Rio de Janeiro residents and plenty of twists and turns. While preparing for the spectacle of a 1940s Carnival, a local dictator's henchman searches for his love-starved wife amidst the throbbing pulse of the samba. Meanwhile, undercover Allied secret agents comb the crowds on the lookout for a murderously sadistic German officer desperately fleeing through the throngs of costumed dancing revelers. It isn't long before blood is shed and bodies start to fall. One lucky sleuth in the audience has a chance to solve the crime and win a prize in this colorful Staged Cinema production. Learn More

By popular demand The Maverick is bringing back for the third time The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (ABRIDGED). Theater-goers will once again enjoy a tumultuous rollercoaster tribute to the immortal bard, Shakespeare. As three actors take on the overwhelming task of performing 37 plays and 154 sonnets in under two hours, illuminating the world of Shakespeare through a unique blend of madcap humor that includes everything from puns and pratfalls to elaborate sight gags of football, swordplay and hip-hop music. Irreverent and hilarious, this comedy sensation keeps delighting audiences and critics.
The entire show is staged in front of a two story tall William Shakespeare head. Performed on the Maverick’s Cabaret Stage; audiences will find themselves knee deep in all the action.
