Welcome to The Mystery Café
Forget the date bring an alibi.
DATE NIGHT: Perfect evening for a playful date night. Gregory Godek wrote books about being romantic. In one of his books you will find the Indianapolis Mystery Café.
FAMILY FRIENDLY: Murder Mystery Comedy Dinner Theatre, Provides a playful evening for you and your kids. There are plenty of fun things to do in Indy during the day but we will get the kids involved in the show or they can enjoy watching you play a character.
Get interrogated over a salad
Waiter, there’s a gun in my soup
A party of 4 could end up a party of 3
Murder interrupts the proceedings of a fictitious group
And written into the story as this fictitious group is you, the audience.
Plus playing minor characters in our story are volunteers from the audience.
In addition performing as the main characters in the story are very funny, very playfull talented actors
Thus Dinner served in courses after each act.
Guess who dunnit at the end of Act 3
Of course the best Guess is our Super Sleuth winner
Likewise there will be a prize for the audience member volunteer who “Hammed” it up the most.
Wayne Chenoweth: My wife and I had a great time tonight, great new location and the food was fantastic. This he staff was awesome and we’ll defiantly be back again.
Robin Gerth: What an awesome evening with great family and friends. Dinner was delicious and the mystery theater was so much fun. Loved seeing families having a great time together. I think my favorite tonight was a little girl, maybe 10 played a part speaking Pig Latin # adorable.
Every performance is unique since the audience is so directly and deeply involved. The magic lies in the interaction and unbridled creativity which occur in a room full of people who began the evening as strangers, but go home as friends.
Public shows take place on Saturday evenings at the Library Restaurant & Pub!
Forget the Date, Bring an Alibi!
Here is a tongue in cheek report on the Mystery Café
DA BOSS: Joe Strange
Joe is an Indiana native and a retired circus clown. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Garden Brothers of Canada, and Circus Fusco are some of the circuses that have been graced by the strangeness of “Silly Joe.” He is a graduate of Purdue University and the Ringling Brothers Clown College. He says, “I think my grad school studies were a little different from normal. I don’t think Yale has a pie-throwing class.” Joe works full time for the Mystery Cafe of Indianapolis and the Indy audiences who love to laugh at a good murder!
