Prohibition is in full swing This roaring mystery-comedy is set at the Imperial Ballroom in Atlantic City where guests are watching a live radio broadcast. Host “Pretty Boy” Bambino has his hands full with a cadre of guests, crooks and ladies of the night. Sultry, silent-screen star Miss Ruby Devine will debut her singing talents. But before a note is sung, a baby is snatched, a prisoner has escaped from the pen, a G-man arrives disguised as a nun, and the bullets start flying.
This is a non-stop interactive mystery comedy set in a time and place audience members will never forget. They play an active role in solving the crime using clues they discover and decode. There are even some small roles for some of them to play during the show. Those who correctly guess the murderer qualify for a prize drawing. It’s an evening of non-stop fun, music, and laughs, and a show that is a well -written, well thought-out, interactive mystery.
General Admission Tickets are $30 with EPAF Member Tickets at $25.
