Comedy Murder-Mystery Dinner Theater in Minnesota

About Us:

What to Expect:

Featuring the best in local talent, The Mystery Cafe dishes out a hilarious comedy caper, where you and your table are invited to solve the crime…all while enjoying a delicious 3-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. Whether or not you crack the case, you’ll certainly bust a gut.

Mystery History:

Lee H. Adams founded The Mystery Cafe MN in 1989, making it the original Twin Cities interactive dinner theater. Lee had been a core member of the first Mystery Cafe 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 Cafe company member Brian Kelly. Brian has written, directed and produced many shows throughout his 20 plus years as a Twin Cities performer, and is delighted to carry on The Mystery Café tradition.

Over the years, Mystery Cafe 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 in hiring the finest local talent, who share our commitment to high-quality entertainment.
