Theater while you dine.
In 2013 our fundraising shows generated over $25,00.
Our shows combine improvisation, stand up and traditional theater.
Although we're fully scripted we engage the audience as much as possible.
Live is better!
Since 1998 Murder Cafe has been bringing theater to you with an amazing mix of skills and talents. We deliver original scripts, period costumes, one-of-a-kind production design, and marketing and publicity skills that ensure each event's success. Our public shows are scheduled year round throughout the Hudson Valley of New York along with fundraising events, company parties, school and college plays and casino entertainment.
"GONG, YOU'RE DEAD!"
Starting it's 17th season this month, Murder Cafe is presenting an original, comedy musical titled, GONG, YOU'RE DEAD! This variety show, which includes our signature elements of murder and mystery, is set at the county fair and includes seven actors playing over 15 different roles. Audiences will be treated to to song, dance, magic, gymnastics, standup and sketch comedy and a taste of Shakespeare.
"This show was written to showcase the comic and musical talents of our talented troupe of actors", says Murder Cafe producer and director Frank Marquette. "This is not your average murder mystery show. In keeping with our reputation we presenting a variety show with great music, laugh-out-loud comedy and damn good acting."
