Crime and Pun-ishment The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 17 2011

For $45, Murder Mystery Company walks you through this gangster-themed whodunit while feeding you a meal consisting of salad, pasta, and—more salad or pasta. It may be unfair to expect world-class dining as part of a kitschy night of immersive entertainment. But when they're offering people the equivalent of a church spaghetti dinner, it's time to rethink the concept. Why not ditch the meal, lower the price, and focus more intently on the game? As things stand, the breezy narrative doesn't make sufficient use of a talented, engaging cast of improvisers. —Dan Jakes

Price: $45
