  • Where: 830 Phillips Ln, Louisville, KY
    The Dinner Detective Interactive Murder Mystery Show is a four-course sit-down dinner in which each guest is allowed to choose their own entree. In between each course of the meal, we have another part of the show. The show is an interactive and improvised comedic murder mystery set in the present day. None of our 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 our Detectives will help everyone try to solve the crime. In the end, we have a prize package for the Top Sleuth who comes closest to solving the crime.
    When: 6:15-9:15
    Fee: $54.95 - 59.95++ per person
