We were not sure what to expect but this was a very fun evening. If you get the opportunity GO! We debated about this and the comedy works, with this we got comedy, dinner, drinks and a show. The food was catered and was simple but good.

Husband and I took my "out of town" mom and my boys age 12 and 9 to the Friday night show. The actors, who are in costume, mingle a bit with you while you are waiting to go in to the room where the show is. There's a cash bar where you can purchase drinks or sodas (our sodas were... More

My husband & I had wanted to do this for years, and since we are not getting younger it was time to seize the day. It was during the holiday season and they had allot of holiday party's taking place, the owners however worked to accommodate my needs. Already I was impressed. The evening did not disappoint.

Most enjoyable evening with friends, excellent dinner , actors were very funny and entertaining and engaged audience at every opportunity. Seating for the show and dinner is with large banquet tables seating 10 per table. Cannot remember last time we laughed so much during the entire play.

The beauty of this place is its unique, audience-involved experience. It's a different kind of fun you can't really find anywhere else in Denver. They've taken an old mortuary, added a stage, and used the old meeting room as a theatre. Dinner is served, and it is catered. It is fun to arrive a little bit early, enjoy the bar,... More

We went for a New Year's Eve early supper show called Zombie Murder. My husband being very outdoorsy (really into hunting and fishing) was complaining the whole time during the scavenger hunt before hand. My 11 year old son was also. My 5 year old was getting nervous seeing all the actors in their costumes mingling with the crowd. Once... More

I have never been to mystery theatre, and, while this one was as hokey as I imagined, it was tremendous fun. It was a Christmas present for my 10-year old niece who loves mysteries, but we all ended up enjoying it (surprisingly, as my siblings can be quite critical). The mystery was fun (easy to figure out but only two... More

I was there with a group of 8 people, ages 13 to 62. We all had fun! The actors were engaging and the food was awesome. The parking was free, easy, and right next to the home location. Arrive 30 minutes early so you can tour the home, going upstairs and down the basement, and have a relaxing drink while... More

This was so much fun! The actors were outstanding and you really get to know the people at your table. I have never laughed so hard or so much. I loved it!

It is no mystery why we always have an amazing time at the show with Lots of Laughs. It is an interactive mystery dinner show, with lots of comedy. Everyone there is very nice and encourages you to have a good time. The food is good/okay, I look at it as paying for the entertainment. They have a couple different... More
