I absolutely loved the turnout of this event. This company was prompt and so engaging with our guests. Everyone loved the game and we are looking forward to having them again. Communication was excellent by both Carolyn and Gary. We at POParazzi Highly recommend !!!!
Event held at local yacht club was outstanding!
Carolyne and Chris got the entire group involved right off the bat. Everyone participated, we laughed, we investigated, we interrogated and we even solved the murder. Highly recommended event for a large or small venue.
Response from The Gumshoe Murder Mystery Company:
Thank you, Helene! We had such a wonderful time with you and your guests at Port Jefferson Yacht Club!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful each of their mysteries are. You will be pleasantly astonished at talent of the host and how they bring out such talent in yourself that you might not even have known about. They bring forth a wonderful creation of the setting. They're fun and engaging, and I can't wait to hire them again! Brilliant!
Sound system was not good most people in the room couldn't hear what was going on or what they were supposed to be doing lost audience interest 😒
What to Expect
A murder mystery night plays out like this. Our actors arrive before the guests and greet guests in character. The actors then select 8-10 guests to become characters as well. These "suspects" form a team with 2-8 other guests (those in closest proximity) to solve the murder. The murder happens at the end of Act 1 and leads into our first investigation in which guests walk around to mingle and discover clues from other suspects. Investigation times last about 5 minutes. During Act 2 the actors interrogate the most suspicious character, for the entertainment of the audience. At the end of Act 2, another investigation time will occur. In Act 3, the actors review all the clues for the audience, and give everyone the opportunity to guess who the killer is by writing it down on final sentencing sheets. Whoever guesses the killer correctly receives the, "Gumshoe of the Night," award from us. Also the two guests who play their character the best receive, "Best Actor and Actress," awards. Sometimes our clients offer real rewards for the winner or winners like gift certificates, drinks or other items. But we give out paper awards to motivate cooperation during the event. And we have noticed that our guests are more than happy with their paper rewards. Since our show is modeled in a dinner theatre format, you have the option of having food served throughout the night or in between acts if desired. We look forward to making your next event a unique and memorable one!

The staging of our shows are flexible enough to serve any size room from a NYC apartment living room to a banquet hall. If the room is large enough to play a board game of "Clue" in, then it is large enough to have our murder mystery show. Our focus is our guests and we 'own' whatever space they invite us to play in.
