Delighting audiences since 1989,
The Mystery Café is the Twin Cities' original
comedy who-dunnit dinner theater.


The Show:

It's December 23rd, 1978.

Albee Humphrey used to be a household name, but these days his star is flickering.  He's got one last shot at his big comeback - with a network televised Christmas Special.  There's celebrity guests, variety acts, and there's even rumor of a reunion with his former comedy partner - after a 20 year feud.  He'll be using members of his studio audience as extras, so you may even find yourself getting in on the act!  This is his last chance to be a star again.  He'll either make it to the top... or die trying!

What to Expect:

Featuring the best in local talent, The Mystery Café dishes out a hilarious comedy caper, in which you and your table are invited to solve a crime...all while enjoying a delicious three-course meal.

Upon arrival, you’ll be seated by members of the cast. The show consists of four acts, in between which you’ll be given a course...and a clue. You’ll also be provided with “Mystery Money,” so you can bribe characters for more information.

The clues point to one answer, and a prize is awarded to our “Super Sleuth” winner. We also give prizes for the most...shall we say...“creative” answer. Right or wrong, you’ll be laughing all the way to the solution. You may not crack the case, but you’ll certainly bust a gut.

About the Mystery Café:

The Mystery Café MN was founded in 1989, making it the original Twin Cities interactive dinner theater. Lee Adams had been a core member of the first Mystery Café in Boston, as both actor and writer. For 26 years, he served as owner and creative director. In that time, he wrote and directed nearly every show and acted in many of them. In 2016, Lee handed the reigns to longtime Mystery Café company member Brian Kelly. Brian has written, directed and produced many shows throughout his 20-plus years as a Twin Cities performer, and currently serves as the entertainment director for the St. Paul Saints. Brian is delighted to carry on The Mystery Café tradition.

Over the years, The Mystery Café has entertained hundreds of corporate groups and delighted thousands of patrons. It was the first, and still considered the best, in local interactive dinner theater in the Twin Cities. We pride ourselves on hiring the finest local talent, who share our commitment to high-quality entertainment.
