This was by far the best Murder Mystery I've ever been to! The cast was incredibly talented, the food and drinks were good! It was possibly the best thing we did in San Diego and we spent 9 days there. :)

Such an awesome evening and the show is hilarious! Great for date night or for a large group. By far the best dinner show in San Diego!

The shows I have seen at my kids school are streaks ahead of this one in professionalism. This show is amateur and slapstick. The "actors" keep laughing hysterically and uncontrollably at their own jokes which gets quite irritating, and the boring, ridiculous show just seems...More
