The Dinner Detective® Murder Mystery Dinner Show is the largest murder mystery dinner show in the United States! We have been voted best dinner show in over 30 cities across the US over the past 14 years. We were founded on three simple ideas: To create a show with intriguing scenarios; to offer a show with challenging mysteries; and to perform a show with true-to-life dialogue.
Our immensely popular murder mystery shows are set in the present day and take place in real time. Unlike other murder mystery dinner shows (or just dinner shows in general), with The Dinner Detective, you and your guests will not find themselves staring at cheesy costumes, there will be no recited campy dialogue and certainly no hokey song and dance. Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not! All scripts are based on actual cold cases and are created in house. From the get go, the guests are seated with the performers and may not even realize it until they die… the performers, that is! Our Detectives enter the room, proceed to interrogate guests, find clues and start the investigation. This allows our guests to socialize with and interrogate each other, while deciphering real life-based clues. This adds to the interactive and unique nature of our events. At the end of the night, prizes are awarded to the Top Sleuth who solves the crime!
