We attended the show last Saturday (Mid-Sept 2016) and had a great time. The whole experience was fun. The seeting process was entertaining because (I discovered later) that the cast members were also the ushers. The show was fun and there was a lot of audience participation.

Join the fun acting out with this talented group. Have some snacks and enjoy the show and even be a part of it if you wish! It really is fun.

My husband and I went to the black fedora during our anniversary trip to Charleston. We had a ball! The show was very funny with lots of audience participation. I would definitely go back!

I wanted my money back. Poorly executed "comedy mystery", neither funny or mysterious. Don't bother going.

A great stop for an evening of fun and laughter. Each show lasts 90-120 minutes and starts in the evening, so its a great after dinner attraction. We loved the Inspector No-Clue show so much we rearranged our trip plans so we could go back for their Heist Heist show which was also great. The cast are very engaging and... More

Attended the Sunday evening show, had a great time with friends. Lots of laughs. They did an excellent job of getting the audience involved in the show. Would definitely do again!

Fun way to spend an evening in Charleston! The venue is small and cozy and the acting is up close and personal. Guests are invited to participate before the show starts so all of you stunted thespians, get ready. The shows are fun and packed with corny jokes and the audience participants are usually very funny.

Fun mystery theater with a lot of audience participation. A lark! Ok, it was pretty silly, but what a fun night. More comedy than mystery. If you like to laugh out loud you will probably really like this theater. Our group did not have any food but those around us who did seemed to enjoy it.
