We were looking for something fun to do while in Charleston. We found The Black Fedora.
It was a fun live theatre with audience participation. The drinks were reasonable and the audience was given scripts to read to be part of the act. Great Fun

My husband and I went to Charleston to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. We enjoyed everything we did but our evening at The Black Fedora was the highlight.
The show is a great deal of fun, very interactive with a small audience.
The script is wonderfully corny and the cast was great.
We had all the clues we needed but they still managed a surprise ending.
All I can say is - GO! Don't hesitate - Go!

We ended our week long stay in Charleston with an evening at The Black Fedora. It was the highlight of our trip! We thoroughly enjoyed the antics of the four talented actors who brought to life "Inspector NoClue". The audience participation was great! The venue is "intimate" and lends itself to this kind of show as no microphones are necessary and there are no bad seats in the house. Kudos to Reid, who came out onto the street to meet us and tell us about the show the night before we actually went there. He sold us on it and we purchased tickets online the next morning at https://www.charlestonmysteries.com. We will definitely go back when in Charleston again. Try it! You will love it!

The Black Fedora is a new nighttime entertainment option for Charleston--mysteries (we saw Inspector NoClue) presented live/scripted (with brief video introduction) with similarly scripted audience participation. The acting was enthusiastic though choppy at times; the story line and humorous bits somewhat thin but enjoyable nonetheless. Basic drinks, including wine and beer served and reasonably priced; overall price reasonable as well, particularly for Charleston. While rough at the edges the Fedora is worth a visit and continued support--it has the chance of growing into a a real Charleston charmer!

Our first time will not be our last at the Black Fedora. We experienced a great evening with a creative crowd and marveled at the energy that the crowd/cast/volunteers delivered their lines and acted in their roles - and some outside their roles. The regular cast adapted in an amazing fashion. We look forward to the next event. The location is great!
