Have you ever played Clue – the murder mystery board game, where you accuse others of the crime (why is the candlestick always the murder weapon?!)? Well, what if I were to tell you that you could experience Clue in real-life?
Let me explain. There’s this fabulously entertaining business by the name of The Murder Mystery Company, and they specialize in murder mystery parties. Basically, they hold public shows that anyone can buy a ticket to, and with the use of talented actors, they immerse the audience as a part of a murder mystery dinner experience. It is too cool!
They even give you the option for a private party, where they bring the mystery to you, and let you host your own dinner party. Such a fun idea to get everyone together for a different kind of night.
I had the pleasure of getting my very own firsthand experience with The Murder Mystery Company, just to see what all of the hubbub was about. 🙂 Our particular show was held at The Greater Good Barbecue restaurant, which is located in Tucker, GA. The Murder Mystery Company really catered to their surroundings, putting on a Western-style “Wanted Dead or Alive” show. Thanks to the super fun and entertaining actors, the whodunit show was perfect… Especially when you’re chomping down on some too-good-to-be-true barbecue. 😛
For those of you who are looking to spice up your weekend plans and try something new, I definitely recommend taking part in your own Clue-style show. The Murder Mystery Company operates in 35 venues over multiple states, so you’re sure to find fun even if you’re not in Georgia – just hop on over to www.grimprov.com, where you can check out the location details and purchase tickets.
And remember— there’s always the option of hosting your own Murder Mystery Dinner… Just make sure there aren’t any candlesticks lying around. 😉
