Mystery dinner theater entertains unrealized detective fantasies without the grueling hours, Styrofoam coffee cups or after-hours wrangling with Angela Lansbury. Write an excerpt to a new chapter with today's Groupon: for $60, you get two tickets to Mystery Cafe for a dinner theater experience that includes a three-course dinner and unlimited non-alcoholic drinks for two (a $118.96 value). Shows are performed on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with seating starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Suites Houston, where free self-parking is available.
Mystery Cafe's zany players have been entertaining sleuth-savvy supper guests in the banquet-style show space since 1995, inviting diners on a wacky ride of murderous shenanigans and coaxing them to figure out who committed the not-so-perfect crime. Each performance spans four acts in traditional mystery structure, integrating humor, colorful characters, and more plot twists than a game of Uno. All amateur investigators dig through clue packets brimming with mini puzzles integral to solving the evenings mystery. At the end the show, findings are submitted and tallied; the guest who most accurately solves the crime is named Super Sleuth and openly rewarded with a piece of celebratory evidence. Between each act, dine on a leisurely three-course dinner prepared by the Sheraton Suites chefs. Call at least two days prior to your performance and choose your entree from a menu of three options, such as london broil marinated flank steak with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables or a hulking portion of penne pasta and pesto sauce.
Show performances vary depending on the evening. Current mystery musings revolve around the murder-stalking plot twists Killer Karaoke and the discovery that Marriage Can Be Murder, especially when family money and the worlds largest barbecued-baked-bean company is involved. Check for available performance dates and slip into the kind of dressy-casual attire that would make Mrs. Peacock proud.
