Since 1995, the Houston franchise of America's
Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre, Mystery Cafe, has
entertained and kept audiences guessing with their special version of
the Whodunit - wacky characters committing comic mayhem on each other,
all involved in a plot with more twists and turns than a Picasso
(or, What exactly is Comedy
Interactive Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre?):
Each Mystery Cafe show
is four acts in length, following the traditional structure of the
mystery: introduce the zany characters, kill at least one of them, and
then figure out who did it.
During each of the
breaks between acts, a different course of the meal is served and the
characters mingle with the audience, trying to make sense of the
mini-puzzles included in the clue packets. Vital
information may also be obtained from the characters by employing the bribe
money provided, but be careful - some of these people aren't
the breaks, time is also taken to recognize birthdays, anniversaries,
and more than once... wedding proposals!
Winner of the United States
Commerce Association's Houston Award
for Dinner Theatres, 2009-2014!
At the end of the
evening, each audience member details on their solution sheet
who they think Did It and Why... and the person with the most correct
answer is named the Super Sleuth of the evening
and awarded a prize!
Seating for Mystery Cafe
is banquet style*, meaning that there is no stage
for you to uncomfortably crane your neck toward - the action happens
all around you. Or as one actor said, "The show is like an amoeba,
surrounding, engulfing, and eventually devouring you." Don't worry,
we've made sure he's taking his medication now.
*Parties of 11 or more will be seated
at adjacent tables
Our dress code is
described as "dressy casual". Though full formal wear has been in
attendance at our performances, you'll feel equally at ease in jeans or
slacks with a nice shirt or blouse. No shoes, no shirt, no slaughter.

WHY IS THERE A LOWER SEATING LIMIT?
rarely, we find it necessary to cancel a show due to a lack of
reservations. It is unfortunately impractical to perform our shows for
less than 20 people at a time, due both to the interactive nature of
our shows - the competitive atmosphere can decline significantly with a
small group - and to simple economics. Rest assured, on the infrequent
occasion that we must cancel a show, we shall work overtime to
reschedule you to your satisfaction.
What Where When

entertained literally thousands of Houstonians who were seeking novel
ways of celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, prom nights, Mother's,
Father's and Grandparent's Days, or just seeking a good time. We've
