We went to the HOB Murder Mystery Dinner Theater on August 11, 2011.

At 7 P.M. sharp, we were led upstairs to the room where the dinner theater was to be held. We were seated at a round table for 11. At the table were a grandfather and grandmother, their adult daughter and the two adult granddaughters from West Virginia; a couple and their adult daughter from Ohio and we three. For the first 20 minutes after we were seated, a lady did the introduction and gave us an idea as to what was happening and then two of the characters walking around the room asking people if they knew anything about a note they had. http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a1d60 ... /ry%3D400/ Without getting into details, a bunch of murders took place before and during the play. And a few clues were suggested in the dialogues. http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a1d60 ... /ry%3D400/ Our job was to figure out who the killer(s) was/were. During the process, a dinner was served. It consisted of a tossed salad with honey mustard or ranch dressing, a piece of Rosemary chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans, a vanilla custard dessert and water, coffee or iced tea to drink. The food was OK, at best. The play was a little worse. It had some humorous scenes and the characters seemed to have some talent, but the whole thing was not what I expected. As it turns out, the murderers were tied to a convoluted storyline that a few of the audience could follow. At the end of the play, the events were reviewed. Then we were asked to complete the answer sheets that were on our tables settings when we arrived at the theater. After about a 10 minute break, the MC read off the names of the people who “didn’t have any idea who did what”; those that had "good answers, but were not correct" and 3 or 4 people who had figured out the case correctly. We all had "good answers, but not the correct answers". So for us, it was a way to spend an evening (the play last less than 2 hours) in Myrtle Beach. We would grade the whole experience a “C/C+”. For the cost ($126 for 3), we felt that we could have spent our money more wisely elsewhere. We would not likely go again.
