From the moment we walked through the doors, we became part of the adventure in this ongoing story throughout the evening. The cast were hilarious and involved the audience, yet did not over do it. We definitely would rec. this live who-dunnit...continued

Maybe it just wasn't my type of humor. I couldn't wait for the three-hour show to end. But to be fair, there were a couple of moments of humor.

Description

This new mystery comedy offers many laughs, lots of suspicion and, of course, plenty of audience participation! Set in the Old West, sibling rivalry, jealousy, gambling and revenge turn a quiet western town into a stage for murder. Ironically, they all pick the same day to do it, and they all seem to fail miserably…or do they? A gringo and his gold are soon departed, and your help is needed to solve this hilarious mystery!

Written and directed by Victoria Valasco

Co-written by James Pascarella

As always, The Mystery Café is presented in a restaurant setting while the actors, remaining in character, serve a four-course meal between the scenes of the play. There is ample time to interact with the actors during each course and throughout the show. While the show takes place, audience members may take an active role and try to solve the mystery, or simply sit back and enjoy the show.

The Mystery Café distinguishes itself from the myriad of other mysteries because it hires professional directors, technicians and actors with an emphasis on costumes, lights, sound and music.
