It’s 1923, and the speakeasy is packed for the birthday party of Al Spumoni, the world-famous bootlegger and ice cream tycoon. A waiter dims the lights for Al to blow out the candles on his cake.
When the lights come back up, Al toasts the crowd, takes one sip of his special drink, then chokes and dies.
Who poisoned Al’s bathtub gin while the lights were out? Was it one of the gangsters in the room? A high-kicking flapper? A visiting silent film star? Or could it have been—YOU?
Appropriate for ages 13+!

Broadway Murder Mysteries, where YOU are the show! Broadway Murder Mysteries was created in March of 2020 when many Broadway performers, writers, and talent were out of work. The Broadway shut down had a huge impact on the theater community, and Broadway Murder Mysteries was created to give jobs to out of work talent, while creating something inherently theatrical that theater and mystery fans would love.
