A royal whodunnit at Poison Ivy

WEST JORDAN — Though initially skeptical of the idea of a “murder mystery musical,” I found myself pleasantly surprised by Poison Ivy Mysteries’s production of Shadow of the King. My expectations were easily exceeded by this charming production, and while some elements could use a little bit of work, the experience, overall, was magical.


“Twilit” has potential, but needs work

WEST JORDAN — Every once in a while I attend a show that I just can’t get into even though much of the audience loves it.  Poison Ivy Mysteries latest production fell flat for me.  Even though all of the talent involved showed a lot of promise, a few key elements made for an evening […]


Hunt Mysteries presents A Cruise to Remember

SANDY — This was my second time attending a Hunt Mysteries show, and they are a 2-for-2 success in my book. Now, mind you, you have to go to a Hunt Mystery with the right mindset. You should probably never go to a play in the upstairs of Spaghetti Mama’s expecting classic theater. You’re not […]

‘Death…The Final Frontier…May the Corpse Be With You’

MIDVALE — All I knew going into Death…The Final Frontier…May the Corpse Be With You was that it was a comedy and dinner would be served.  I ended up getting a lot more than a few laughs and a meal; I got to be part of an adventure.


‘Get a Clue: The $tocks Caper’ is well worth investigating

OGDEN — I’ve always been a little cautious of dinner theatre and didn’t know quite what to expect. Granted, I knew I wasn’t going to be snacking on a lamb shank while A Midsummer Night’s Dream played on a stage in front. What’s more is this promised to be a murder-mystery-musical dinner theatre performance. Simply put, I was more than pleasantly surprised by my night with Hunt Mysteries and I’m pretty sure you will be too.
