An absolutely fun time from the moment guests arrived to the conclusion of the event, the actors were engaging and all guests got involved. Preparations and attention to detail prior to the event by the Murder Mystery Company were top notch.

We recently used the Murder Mystery Company for a team building combined with dinner. EVERYONE (even those who initially had some trepidation) had a great time. The participants are still talking about all the fun. The initial prep to the actual show was simple. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

We went to the Murder Mystery Company in Jersey City. I have been wanting to do this for some time. The show was sold out. The evening was very entertaining. Everyone who went knew you had to be part of the show to have a good time. A few people dressed up and that made it more fun. Dinner comes... More

The experience itself was entertaining and the food was pretty good. The cast is lively and audience interaction is encouraged.

This is a dinner and a show. The building is several centuries old and quite nice. Seating was cramped as they had too many chairs. The food portions were too small and there were only two choices. It was just ok, but not what I would recommend for dinner. The show was silly and appropriate only for under 30's. Too... More

Do not waste your money on the "gold circle" seating ! I paid extra to wave pom poms one time during the "performance"-& get a picture- that was what the "gold circle" seating was for. The seats were so tight my Mom's seat back was against another seat back. There is no stage- there really is no performance- It is... More

I had the wonderful opportunity to deal with the Murder Mystery Company's professional and pleasant staff. I had heard that the dinner show was amazing and so I had sought out tickets for my school's fundraiser. The people I spoke with were very helpful and accommodating. Whoever wins this amazing prize at my tricky tray will enjoy a great night... More

Boring. Main entree was just OK. Dessert was apparently half baked. Staff was indifferent, arrogant at times. Actors were OK. Managed to pull it. Although there wasn't much scope for them. There wasn't any stage performance. NONE at all.. They pick people from audience to play most of the characters.. And expect audience to interact with the real actors and... More

The whole show was very disorganized. We stood in a long line and waited for a mandatory photo. Then we were seated and moved again 5 minutes later to make room for a larger party. You sit on top of each other. Our order was NEVER taken. I flagged down a waiter to order drinks and they never came, so... More
