I got 4 tickets to the Mystery Theater as a gift for my mother. This cost about $200 so I expected quite a lot. When calling into the theater the man who answered the phone was completely unprofessional and rude. He explained how the evening would go, how wonderful the food would be, how interactive and engaging the show would be etc. but was condescending and impatient with me. He made me feel as if I was wasting his time, but I assumed he was busy, so I went through with the transaction…
When my mother tried to schedule a time to go to the show she was treated very poorly. She called in and booked a Saturday night, but immediately remembered that she had a prior commitment, so called them back within MINUTES. The man almost REFUSED to let her change days! She wanted to change to the Friday and he said she could not and that it was too late to do so! She had literally just spoken to him. He finally agreed to allow her to change days but made her feel bad about it. I was in the room and immediately became really worried about how her evening would play out…
When I next saw my mother I asked how the evening went- she just groaned! Horrible food (NOT what was promised when I made the ticket purchase). NO interaction from the people on stage with the audience (I was told that the staff would drop of clues at the table while the dinner was being served and that the entire evening would be highly interactive). The show was tacky, boring and not funny. My mother said at the end they simply gave the audience a piece of paper and said, “Read this and write your answers down and don’t forget to give us a tip.” Wow! All 3 of her friends were completely appalled by the show and staff.
I am so disappointed that I wasted so much money on this gift and even more disappointed that my mother and her friends had an awful time. PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE THIS BUSINESS!
This place was terrible!!! Although the play itself was fun, it was a rip off! We called to get our money back before the show after we read a review and the person on the phone was so rude! He was yelling at us and saying some very shocking statements, and would not give us our money back! The tickets are $42 each! That is almost as much as a Broadway ticket! The tickets were no way worth what the price was even with a meal. Bringing up the meal, first there was a salad, which one girl at my table was given no dressing, and my husband had to ask the drink waiter multiple times to get his drink. After the salad, they gave us Mexican food?? The plate was not even full! There was one chip, with a little bit of beans, a tiny enchilada, and a little piece of corn bread. I was about ready to ask the waiters (actors) serving, if that was all we were getting! The room and table clothes were dirty, and the little favors of bubbles they gave us were empty. The humor was crude, the list goes on.
Nothing special. Older men tottering around getting "turned on." Wish I'd stayed home.
The free tango lessons at Cafe Vincente were the greatest one on one dancing instructions I have ever witnessed. Superb is the only word we can use to describe the combined experience of authentic Tango Argentina lessons taught by Ms. Forde, her attention to individual requests and her professional style. Along with the great food and beverages our evening was nothing short of magnificent.

Great service to the public! Learn about participating in clinical research while you are there!
I am 14 and my brother is 15. We loved the show and even figured out who the killer was and won two tickets to SHerlock Homes! We laughed so hard.
So nice to see that Tucson has an event like this. The actors were hysterical, the sets well done and the magic silly but fascinating. Yummy meal and dessert and nice venue, can stay for salsa dancing after the show too. Two thumbs up from my table of ten, cant wait to go back.
PERFECT for company events; it gets everyone involved, it is funny, interactive, gets people moving, laughing, keeps them guessing. We just had our company event here. We had 56 people in attendance and today, the Monday after the event I've heard more positive comments about it that I've ever had before. We had a terrific time. The show was slap-stick comedy at its best. Ross ("The Mostly Magnificent Steve") and the rest of the actors are hilarious (special Kudos to Trixie...OMG...where did this guy hide all this time!!!???!). The magic is great. The humor is tremendous. I found myself still laughing at some jokes 24 hours later!!! We will definitely do it again!
Just an update for everyone:Soiree Open Aire Market is no longer open on Sundays.
My Husband and I attended the show just this weekend--Valentine weekend. If you know anything about Tucson...well some of the post before may have had their expectations set wayyyy high. From where it was held, you should'nt have expected a lot. But when we sat down, it was pretty hillarious. Loved Trixie, the southern tranny, a Rupaul reject. She/It made the whole show funny. The food was typical diner food, and you're right, the chicken sauce was questionable...but the dessert was scrumptious. We sat with 3 other couple in our table and they too had a blast. It's similar to Gaslight without the singing and yes, the actors and actress' worked hard as our wait staff too... My only reccomendation is perhaps to lower the price. I recommend it.....w/o high expectations...you ARE, by the way, in Tucson! :-)
This place is incredible! It’s a delicious 3-Course candle-lit dinner being served as part of the story line of a hilarious interactive murder mystery whodunit 3-act play. The play's set at a magic show so we got to see some magic performed and someone actually sawn in half. Volunteers from the audience are allowed to come on stage for some of the scenes. Someone even wins a prize at the end for solving the mystery. Everyone had a great time and we'd def go back again.
Highly Recommended... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
I read some of the posted reviews and became apprehensive about our forthcoming evening. Last weekend my wife and I and our best friends attended the Magical Mystery Dinner Theater -- we all had a wonderful time and a terrific evening. It is hard to believe that these other people who posted negative reviews did not have a great time. I know that we all did and when our friends from out of town come to visit us we will all be going again.
I went a couple of days ago and loved it !! I'm looking for a place to tent camp for a week or so close to Torts. Anyone with ideas e-mail me !
I think the person is right about Alexis Faust. But is Alexis Faust reading this? If not then it's pointless.
Maybe someone should post about links to where we can make a difference?
Btw what would searching personals on CL make any difference to this issue?
Vulva69 - Nice screen name.
You may be making some valid points, but it is a bit cowardly to make personal attacks anonymously. If you want to help the situation, come out. Be part of the solution. We should talk. Search personals on CL
Despite UA Flandrau Center Director Alexis Faust's best attempts to kill the Flandrau Center in favor of a $350 million Rainbow Bridge to nowhere, one of the best mineral museums in the world survives even though Flandrau is dead. As Faust kibbutzed with Ralph Applebaum, Rafael Vinoly and her chosen former mentors to the tune of more than $6 million, the entire Rio Nuevo project and its links to the University of Arizona died. Thanks Alexis Faust, why don't you go back to the rarified cultic air of the Bioshpere, where at least it still smells like money. Alexis Faust, where art thou?
