Before I start this review, let me say that we did NOT actually get to see the show. The rating is based on the customer service experience we had trying to see this show. We bought tickets on amazon local for the south Charlotte show (or rather what we thought was a south Charlotte show). address on voucher and in... More

First off let me start by saying how upset this was that we had to get up and do EVERYTHING. From getting your own drink or making this any fun at all. I am disabled and figured this would be a fun thing to do ( I havn't been out for 8 months following my stroke) and I could finally... More

We went to the Totally 80's murder mystery at Maggiano's at Southpark in Charlotte NC. The show was lots of fun and very interactive, with some members of the audience being used as characters. The downside is that audience members aren't pros. The upside is that audience members aren't pros. We had a ball, but this show can hinge on... More

Yesterday, my wife and I along with another couple went to the "Totally 80's Totally Murder" dinner show. What a major disappointment! As we waited on line to be seated, it was one of the cast member's job to take funny pictures of the guests posed with weapons in from of a mug shot back drop. This idea was very... More

I expected more professional theatrical performance but it was more like slightly organized chaos. I went to the 80's mystery dinner. The performance was done by random people in the group with only three organizers knowing what was going on. The food was good but you have to pay for a drink so I just had water. It was buffet...

The theme was 30's. It was fun. It was held at the South Charlotte Banquet Center and very nice place. The food wasn't that great, but the show was. I got this from groupon, and I had been to a previous Murder Mystery Show. I can't wait to attend another

While I would have liked more of a "scripted play", I enjoyed the improv and audience interaction. I enjoyed the fact that we needed to introduce ourselves to the other tablemates; like making friends. I attended in Cramerton instead of Charlotte although I have been to the Freedom Drive location before (even for this SAME show!) Location, setup, the room... More

Myself and a couple of ladies attended one of the dinner shows. The show was not very good at all. The food did not have a taste. Not very impressed. We purchased a groupon deal, but will not return.

What murder mystery? If I hadn't spent $60 per person plus drinks on this I may have been able to laugh this off, as it is it was the worst night we have had in a long time. Here's why: Acting, its not a play, its structured improv. Since the sound was awful and there was no lighting it was... More

My husband and I got half price tickets at Groupon and were excited to go. We both enjoy theater and we thought this would be an actual play where you take notes, with a little audience interaction. Not so! There really isn't a "show" at all. There are a few actors (believe me, I use the term very loosely) and... More
