Come in your favorite Halloween costume and jump into the party! Bet your life on it! Play a detective! Grill the suspects and solve the crime! An Improv Playhouse "Detective" will lead the evening along with another actor and the guests are the primary suspects.  Audience members participate to solve the crime.   Tickets include:  A three course meal featuring London Broil, Chicken Parmesan and Spaghettini Aglio-E – Olio.  Cash bar available.  Props, storylines and planted clues to solve the crime!  Guests can come in costume should they choose.
