A couple months ago Sam and I had an opportunity to see Milwaukee Murder Mystery Co in action at one of their theater events at the Astor Hotel. I was really excited to have a different kind of date night, and it didn’t disappoint.
The act we got to see was Crime and Pun-ishment, it took place in the 1920’s during Prohibition. All attendees were encouraged to dress up. I have to admit Sam and I didn’t, but it was so much fun to see everyone else’s costumes. People really went out with dresses, wigs, and accessories!
Before the show started, and I should mention it included a 3 course dinner, the actors picked out some of the audience members to participate in the act as the suspects. I mean we were invited to solve a murder mystery after all 😉
The night included a lot of interactions, mingling and a fair share of bribing, because that’s how you get the necessary information these days!
The actors were hilarious, the scenes well thought through, making the evening go by way too quickly. I wish the puns and jokes didn’t end. I would definitely go there again and recommend you do too! Make sure to check their Milwaukee Murder Mystery Co or if you are not from Milwaukee find one near you 🙂
I want to get a little side tracked now and point out that we were probably some of the younger attendees that night. We shared a table with a group of ladies who were having a girls night out. They had so much fun, and it was incredible to hear their life stories. I couldn’t stop thinking about our generation and how we spend most of our free time on our phones and it made me sad, but also inspired me to be more social and step out of my comfort zone.
