MYSTERIOUSLY YOURS DINNER THEATRE REVIEW | TARA BERRIES


Mysteriously Yours is a dinner and murder mystery show in midtown Toronto at Yonge and Davisville and I have been three times. The last time I went was on Friday May 27, 2016 which I enjoyed with a group of friends. The theatre does different shows throughout the seasons. The first time I went was in 2011 and there was a detective show with Harry Podder and Anderson Scooper. The most recent show I went to was called "Killer Tunes" which featured actors playing the roles of famous singers: Elvis, Taylor Stift, Justin Bieberdrake, Celine Dijon, Ozzy, Bobby D, and it was hosted by Donald Chump.


You can book your show online and pay at the door. When booking online you can also include someone in your group to be apart of the show (particularly if it is a birthday or anniversary). Once you arrive at the theatre you sign your name on a tag (good to stick with your own name but my group wanted to be the Spice Girls) and are seated at a dinner table. The wait staff are amazing and will begin with ordering your drinks (which are not including in the price of the dinner and show). The theatre has their usual drink menu but they also have a special menu geared towards the show which is a nice added touch.


Then dinner starts and you have the choice between salad or soup and I picked their vegetable soup. There was also a few choices for dinner and I picked the beef brisket which was filled with flavour. Finally, there is dessert and my friend ordered the cheesecake in a cup (shown above) and I ordered the apple and rhubarb tart (I ate it before taking a picture). The dinner is delicious and I remember the other two times I had been the dinner was also good and I had no complaints. 


As dinner wraps up the actors come out to talk with the audience and I met Taylor Stift! During this part of the show you can talk to the actors and get to know their personality in the show.




Our friend Caitlin had her birthday earlier in May and Dale thought it would be a fun idea to include her in the show. Caitlin got to present an award and I think she enjoyed it. There are plenty of times throughout the show that the audience is included and has a role to play. Sometimes it isn't whether you requested being in the show but just where you are seated that gives you a part. For instance I was included in the murder mystery when Elvis was introduced and he fainted on me during the show. The mystery of who committed the crime isn't the only mystery when watching the show it is also wondering who in the audience is going to be included next.                    

As the show is ending the audience writes down who think they committed the murder and when the murder is revealed their names can be drawn for a little prize. Also, the actors acknowledge the people who are celebrating their birthdays and anniversaries. 


A show at Mysteriously Yours is filled with puns and jokes that include current events, pop culture, and a little Canadian culture. I would highly recommend having dinner and enjoying a murder mystery show at Mysteriously Yours because it is so much fun. The way the actors interact with the audience is something you don't get at a musical or play and is something special and unique in Mysteriously Yours.
