We went last Saturday night, 8/20/11. Be prepared upon entry to greet your new actor/waiters/waitresses as they will be in character throughout. One in particular, is extremely loud and childish. At first it is off-putting, but don’t let that bother you-best to enter in the frame of mind to just go with it and prepare for overall silliness. The guy’s actually talented and you will see later that it’s an appropriate part of the evening and of his character. As to the ‘play’ itself, it is not well-written, is difficult to follow, too long, and is basically a silly farce with some improvisation. Overall, though, the character actors rose above the material. ‘Murder Mystery’ hardly describes it. Forget about trying to solve the murder. Despite the foregoing, there were many funny moments. Audience participation is part of the show, and prepare yourself to join in the fun. The food was good for a dinner theatre. However, the Beef Jardiniere we both found to be much better than the Chicken Cordon Bleu - we shared entrees. Dessert cake was very good, but we started with some minestrone or similar vegetable soup that was unremarkable. Salad was standard fare, shared family-style. ‘Petals’ was sexy and charming with her southern accent. Actor who played ‘Basil’ and other parts quite talented, as well as Basil’s and Petals’ ‘child’, whose character name escapes me but his performance was energetic and amusing. Cast, kitchen really try to please. Oh, you can take photos during the performance and at end you can pose with the cast for your own photos. I would recommend this show at Goldstar prices.
Mystery Cafe Dinner Theatre’s newest show takes on a tale of ill-fated love as old as time. It begins with a question… What happens after 25 years of marriage in a less-than-blissful union? For Basil and Petals, it can be murder — just ask the groom! Petals has planned a nostalgic tribute to their nuptials and instead finds himself wearing black and seeing red! After all, the family fortune is at stake. Help solve this hilarious mystery!
