“Avoid this show and save your money”

Ranked #129 of 155 Concerts & Shows in Branson
Attraction details
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We found this show on a website advertising all of Branson's shows, but had we read the reviews beforehand, we would've skipped it! Everything about this show is terrible -- the building, the food and especially the show. The building needs to be updated (tables and chairs were chincy diner type furniture) and to see the show, I had to turn my chair and crank my neck. Not a good first impression. The food was average but did have a nice presentation. Chicken parmesan, veggies, coleslaw and a potato. The dessert was a thin slice of cake. Soda and coffee are not included, only water. The show's cast serves as the actors and waiters, so they do their best to interact with the audience beforehand, but their jokes often fell flat.

The show was a 1-star show, and the cast was very amateur. I found myself looking at my wife throughout the show, just laughing at how poor the set, the plot, and the acting were, especially in front of a paying audience! The only positive from this show is getting the audience involved at the end to solve the suspect's identity and then offering legitimate prizes to the winner.

Do yourself a favor and avoid this show and save your money. Let the cast and crew return to amateur hour at the local college....

I was looking forward to this show and was disappointed by most of it. We ordered our tickets with the dinner included. However, once we got there we were very disappointed to find out that all we got with our dinner was ice water! If we wanted tea or coffee we were told we would have to get up ourselves, go to the "bar" and pay for coffee or tea. I think that for the price, tea or coffee should have been included and we should have been told it was not.
The actual play was just average. Nothing memorable. There was alot of unnecessary screaming from the cast as part of the show. The dinner plates were not removed from the table until intermission. The cast actually came out and cleared the plates and at the same time some of them went around plopping a thin slice of cake on a styrofoam plate down next to the dirty plate. Just a word of caution.... keep your fork. You don't get another.

Saw the show last night and it was awful all the way around. Lawn chairs for props but the premise was that it was a rich lady's party. The food was awful and cold. I have seen better middle school plays! Avoid this show it is a major disappointment.

We picked up discount tickets at All Access Branson-$30 for dinner and a show instead of $39.

The theatre is very dated but comfortable, clean and the staff must be like one big family because they were very welcoming to guests and their banter on stage and off flowed so well.

Upon entering we had a photo opp with props in front of a backdrop of the bed and breakfast from the performance (Marriage is Murder).

Dinner for each show varies and for our show it was chicken parm with baked potato, coleslaw, and a veggie mix. Stay away from the meal. We all ended up in the restroom before the end of the show or upon arriving home.

The show was very entertaining and funny!

Our family saw "Speak Easy, Die Hard". The show was entertaining, I like the fact that the audience got to participate and predict who the murderer was. Our daughter correctly guessed the murderer and won a voucher for an adult admission, and our son got to be in the show (as a prop, but he enjoyed getting carried around) Greeting the cast is always fun. The food however was not great, dry chicken and overcooked vegetables.

We did however arrive a few minutes late and were still seated, which was nice.
