AspenDream Productions™, Connecticut’s longest-running professional murder mystery comedy dinner theatre, puts on an action-packed performance where everyone is considered a suspect. Guests will be assigned a name tag, and are encouraged to attend dressed ready to play the role of a gangster, movie star, politician, or friend to the well-respected “Uncle Franco,” head of the New York Mob family. Someone is killed, and no one can leave until the mystery is solved. Is it jealous rivals from feuding families? Chicago mafia figures infiltrating the scene for gambling purposes? Sinister anti-wealth international forces? A jealous ex-wife? Help Agent Orange solve it all in ‘Mob’s Murder Mystery’.
