My kids and I attended the Sound Mind and Dead Body show in March 2017. Their ages are 20, 17, and 13. It is difficult to find things for families to do that have older kids. I would definitely recommend this. We had a great time. My suggestion is to find another family or friends to attend with to fill... More

Though I enjoyed the Murder Mystery part, there were a few major problems that caused me to give only 2 stars. First, their online booking system is a disaster. While I was booking, the page ended up freezing while sending all of my information, and my credit card was billed even though I had a groupon voucher (you have to... More

I've been to a few other Murder Mystery events and this one was by far the most...just OK. I presented this as a gift to my mother and mother-in-law and had high expectations considering this is the "MURDER MYSTERY COMPANY". We went to "The Best Laid Plans". We went to the Oakbrook Terrace location. It was kind of hidden and... More

The show exceeded my expectations. I was worried there'd be a lot of really slapstick humor and that the murder mystery wouldn't make sense. In reality, the show is pretty well put-together and the actors keep the plot moving along. As the show progresses, the actors call up all of the suspected murderers to the stage and as them to...

We attended the Murder Mystery with high hopes of solving the murder presented to us. But with so many different characters, and clues shared so sporadically, it became really difficult to navigate. Even at the end of the night, when the murderer identity was revealed, we couldn't remember who that character even was. Not spoiling anything by telling you that.... More

I encourage you to dress up. It was a lot of fun seeing most people dressed up in the 20's attire. It added to the fun of it!

This was the most fun either me or my fiance had in a long time. The actors stayed in character the whole time, even when we pushed them to break character, and the food and venue were perfect. Even though I wasn't selected as an audience participant it was still so much fun and and I still felt so involved... More

This is my second time visiting this location. For those of you have not yet experienced a murder mystery, just know that you will be sitting with other people. The first time I went, we were a party of 8 and I thought we would have a table by ourselves. We didn't but I am glad others sat with us.... More

My husband and I went to the Til Death Do Us Part" show at Millhurst, and had a great time. * The troupe asks for audience participation. We thought this was unique, and a huge plus over other murder mysteries we've attended. We might have had an unusually great group of participants, and it was fun to cheer on our... More
