This is the best dinner mystery theater I've ever attended. Beats Dinner Detective by a million miles. Loved the improv, dancing, and inclusion of audience participants in the actual storyline. Also liked that the cast is up on a stage at the front, and the emcee wanders in the audience. Loved that audience members were asked to read clues to identify who done it. FANTASATIC!

Adams Mystery Playhouse put on a fantastic show that entertained 75 high school seniors on their senior trip. They were engaged, entertained, and delighted by the ambiance, food, interaction and jokes. Carlos and his company were excellent to work with for accomodating a large group. They checked in several times and we felt very taken care of. Very highly recommend, we will be back next year!

We went as a group of nine to celebrate a birthday. What a memorable birthday it was. The house is the first character you see. It’s a perfect setting for a murder dinner. Greeted by the first friendly actor who tells us where our table is. There is a cash bar in the parlor before we get seated. The actors are also the servers. We had chicken, rice, salad, and a warm cookie for dessert. The food was very good. Then the show started, each table in the room had someone participate in finding the murderer. Overall the atmosphere was fun and lighthearted. There were all ages there. No small children though, which was good since that would have been distracting.
It was so fun. We would definitely go back, and highly recommended going for a easy fun evening.

I have been here 4 times and can give nothing but the highest praise. The food is great, the cast is an absolute riot, well able to roll with the punches and figure out which audience members are most likely to enjoy a bit of spotlight, and the plots never cease to be fun. I've been wrong on who the murderer is every time and never minded it. Best time to be had in Denver, in my opinion, which is saying a lot since I've lived here most of my life.

We decided to try something different while visiting Denver. Our show was luau themed so dinner was pulled pork (delicious), rice, salad, a roll, and everything tasted great. Then came the show, the cast was hilarious, and involved the audience every step of the way. Lots of improve. Dessert was a nice warm chocolate chip cookie was was so good! We had the best time at this dinner/show and would definitely go again next time we are in the Denver area! I will also be telling anyone coming to the area to check it out, you will not be disappointed!!

A girls trip from South Dakota brought us to Adams Mystery Playhouse. Not knowing what to expect, this was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip. Adult humor, quick witted jokes, and a personalized show. Absolutely recommend putting this stop on your bucket list for Denver, CO!

Plans fell through for a Friends outing on Valentine’s Day the day before. We scrambled to find something else to do on such short notice.

Thankfully, The Adams Mystery Playhouse was able to accommodate our group of 6! Marne and David were so easy to work with over the phone for reservations.

We arrived around 6:15pm and were able to find street parking right across the street. The scavenger hunt was fun and filled the time between our arrival and seating for the show/ dinner.

The actors were absolutely wonderful and quick witted. They made sure to visit our table to introduce themselves and their roles in the festivities.

The show was awesome! There were enough breaks in the show to take potty breaks, grab drinks from the bar, and still keep up with the story.

Loved the conga line! Thank you for a great time! I’ve already planned my next night out there with my family!

My husband had bought me a gift certificate to this place along time ago, we failed to use it before Covid set in and we’re afraid we had lost it. They were generous enough to honor it and I was surprised they were open but we had an absolutely wonderful time. The owners and the other actors or so much fun and it was really a great evening. It was nice to have something close to normal to enjoy!

It could not have been worse. Dinner on paper plate, chicken with cheap bbq sauce and cheap potato salad, an inedible corn veggie, 2 raw baby carrots and a stick of celery. A cheap cookie handed to guests or left on vinyl tablecloth. Worse meal ever

Very amateur acting, poor acoustics. J

I really enjoyed this little mystery interactive play. We were in the basement room and it does get really warm down there in the winter but the experience was wonderful. Super funny, great lead who's very interactive and the improv was spot on. There was some overacting but exactly what you expect at a cooky dinner theatre. I loved it and laughed the whole time.
