“Watch out for Show Cancellations”

Vaudeville Cafe Murder Mystery Dinner Theater
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Actors perform a live family-friendly comedy show all around you as you eat your dinner and enjoy the action! This is dinner with fun and unpredictable outcomes. The actors follow a script and theme, but love to spontaneously involve some of the audience or say something unplanned. Although they love playing with the audience, they are always respectful of those who just enjoy watching. Get to know the characters as they work their way around the room. Spot a crime. Identify the culprit when the authorities arrive. Appropriate for all ages!

We planned our trip to Chattanooga well in advance. I called the Mystery Theater several times while planning to make sure there was going to be a show on Thursday night the week we were in town (We knew there would be no show Monday through Wednesday). We could only get our cabin through Wednesday night, but we planned to just find things to do in downtown Chattanooga until showtime on Thursday and then drive all night to get back home.

We spent $9 on all day parking and $50 watching "Oceans" at the IMAX to take up part of the time that Thursday. At 3:30 pm we called to ask when we needed to arrive for the show. We were told it had been cancelled. They said that they had tried to call us. When we got home (two states away), their message was left was on the morning of the day of the show. If they had told us that the show was subject to cancellation during any of our calls, I would have know to contact them during our vacation to see if it had been cancelled. Instead we were out over $60 we would not have spent and my family had the disappointment of missing a dinner theater they were anticipating. I do not blame the theater for cancelling the show if there was not enough interest, but they should have made it clear that the shows were subject to cancellation when the reservations were made.

My son and I enjoy the dinner and play. We like that it is interactive. You can be part of the entertainment. The times we've been you can be an involved as you'd like to be but aren't forced to participate in the show if you'd rather not. We like it and have seen several of their shows. It is a bit on the pricey side for us but we will splurge for it on occasion.

We have done this show twice both where different and I loved them both. The food was kinda sucky but the show was worth it.
We even took our son who always asks to go back.

It was one of the most stupidest thing my family and I have had to pay to go see. The food was not bad but the story line and acting was as redneck and you can get. Will not go back or can not recommend it.
