JOE STRANGE'S MYSTERY CAFÉ

FAMILY-FRIENDLY Murder Mystery Comedy Dinner Theater

Looking for a unique and fun experience? Look no further than the Murder Mystery Comedy Dinner Theater show, run by a former Circus Clown. Formerly of the Greatest Show on Earth, Joe Strange has the experience to ensure you have a great time. 

 

Join us with your family, friends, date, or team for a night of laughter, dinner, and murder. Our unique twist? We invite volunteers from the audience to play minor characters with actual speaking parts in the show. You're not just a spectator, you're part of the show.  The murder mystery, a comedy designed to entertain, features professional actors in the central roles. We're not looking for you to be Marlon Brando, we want you to have fun and be yourself. 

 

Indulge in a delectable dinner experience. Our menu offers four different entrees, including the Prime ticket option with a mouthwatering Ribeye. Served between acts, the dinner provides a perfect opportunity for conversation. The show takes place at the Library Restaurant, a fine casual dining spot on the West Side of Indy. With free parking and easy access from the Sam Jones Parkway, it's a convenient choice. The kitchen is open 6 days a week, and during the show, the experienced restaurant staff is ready to cater to your dining needs. 

 

Take advantage of this murderously good time! The show is an excellent alternative to a traditional dinner theater. What better show to see than the one you are in.  So, choose wisely, and join us for an unforgettable evening!

Have fun and enjoy a great dinner! 

No pies or seltzer bottle. I leave them at home!
