Join us for night of fun as we unravel a comical mystery before your eyes. Its up to you to decide just who the killer is and solve the crime. The most popular mystery dinner show in the country, Murder at Cafe Noir, by David Landau with music and lyrics by Nikki Stern, has enjoyed weekly productions coast to coast since its premiere in 1989. This forties detective story come to life features Rick Archer, P.I., out to find a curvaceous runaway on the forgotten island of Mustique, a place stuck in a black and white era. The owner of the Cafe Noir has washed ashore, murdered, and Rick's quarry was the last person seen with him. He employs his hard boiled talents to find the killer. Was it the French madame and club manager, the voodoo priestess, the shyster British attorney, the black marketeer or the femme fatale? The audience votes twice on what they want Rick to do next and these decisions change the flow of this comic tribute to the Bogart era. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, September 2, at 11:30am. Tickets are $40 per person and the price includes a scrumptious 4-course meal and admission to the show.

Written by A.R. Gurney, The Dining Room is a brilliantly conceived and richly humorous theatrical tour de force (and Off-Broadway success) in which the performers portray a wide array of diverse characters. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some rueful. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events; a father lectures his son on grammar and politics; a boy returns from boarding school to discover his mother's infidelity; a senile grandmother doesn't recognize her own sons at Christmas dinner; a daughter, her marriage a shambles, pleads futilely to return home, etc. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.
