Murder mystery dinners are a growing trend across the nation. Like the Jukebox musicals running rampant on Broadway, they are entertaining for people of all ages and backgrounds. However, you don’t have to buy a plane ticket and book a room to enjoy a murder mystery dinner.

Yet, as with any burgeoning trend, there is a wide range of quality.
Walking Shadow productions always merit some praise for many different aspects of their productions. This is the second production where I thought the selection of the play itself took some artistic bravery. I felt the same way about Sexual Lives of Savages. These are not plays that other theatres would produce and that as much as anything is worth thanking Walking Shadow for doing so.
