My wife and I attended the comedy/mystery dinner theater production of "There is a Bomb on Trolley 409!" in the basement of Lady and Sons Restaurant. Unfortunately, we can't recommend this dinner theatre performance.
We bought our tickets online, and the tickets advised us to come early and check in with the hostess. The tickets were for 6:30 PM, so we dutifully arrived at 6:15 and the hostess outside told us to go into the gift shop and into a waiting room next to the gift shop. We did that, and we waited in a crowded room that had insufficient seating. 6:30 came and went, and I was starting to wonder if I was in the correct place. There was a hostess inside the room who was running in and out, but she was not putting out any information to the customers about the dinner theatre. I finally caught her attention and asked her if we were in the right place and she said yes, but that the dinner buffet was not ready. She did not provide additional detail about when the buffet would be ready or when we would be seated. At this point I felt a bit like a herd animal, and my wife (a real Paula Dean fan) was starting to mumble about trying to get our money back. It didn't help that I have a bad back that is aggravated by continuous standing.
We were eventually taken downstairs for seating between 6:45 and 6:50. The dinner buffet was plentiful, but nothing special, particularly compared to the truly outstanding food you can get elsewhere in Savannah. And the theatre performance was totally unimpressive. The actors were exuberant, but no one in the audience was laughing. Not me, not my wife --- and not anyone else that I could see. I am not sure whether it was the actors or the script, or a combination, but the play just wasn't funny -- it was boring.
Altogether, "Bomb on Trolley 409" is not worth the 40 plus dollars you have to pay for the combined buffet/show.
