Marriage Can Be Murder

I attended Marriage Can Be Murder last night, Las Vegas’ longest-running fully-interactive dinner theater experience, which is celebrating its 22nd year. It was a ticket broker night and we were all having a great time with the pre-performance champagne.

Compliments go out to Vegas Vibe for putting on another great event, which included a raffle and plenty of drinks. Always pick up a copy of this free magazine when you are in Las Vegas.

“Our 22nd year is turning out to be Marriage can be Murder’s best year yet,” said co-creator Jayne Post. “We just announced our exciting new residency at ‘The Venue’ inside The Orleans Hotel and Casino and we couldn’t be more thrilled about the show’s ongoing success.”

A Las Vegas entertainment staple, Eric and Jayne Post’s Marriage Can Be Murder is an interactive comedy-murder mystery that includes a three-course dinner served alongside the continuous performance of actors who are hidden among the audience. Dinner includes salad and bread, chicken and steak along with two sides and a dessert. The highly immersive presentation treats audiences to a hilarious and engrossing evening, with attendees serving as participants in a whodunit rife with questionable alibis, unusual suspects, and shocking revelations. During this performance there are four “murders” which you are trying to solve.

“The Venue” includes multiple stages around the space to keep guests deeply engaged and entertained throughout the evening. The plot, theme and actors change every three months, keeping the show fresh for returning guests eager to solve the mystery anew. This is probably my sixth time attending over the years, and every “plot” has been great.

“As a costar and a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef, I’m able to ensure that all aspects of the dinner theater experience meet the high standard Las Vegas visitors expect from Marriage Can Be Murder,” said co-creator Eric Post. “We’re Vegas’ longest-running interactive dinner show because we strive to exceed the expectations of audiences and consistently deliver a presentation that’s fun, original, engaging, and gastronomically delectable.”
