Larry’s Late Show is a murder mystery comedy filled with audience participation, hilarious hijinks, conniving characters, and loads of fun. No two shows will be the same, and the audience will play a key role in solving the mystery. Open to all ages. Festive beverages will be served for anyone 21+.
The Plot: Eight eccentric characters will do anything it takes to get ahead. Their stories intertwine and lead them to meet at the Villa Aphrodite Italian Restaurant and Comedy Emporium for one fateful night. Chaos ensues as we learn about these comically nefarious characters, their relationships with each other, and even their involvement in illegal activities. While it’s clear that all of them lack a moral compass, only one of them will go too far: the murderer.
Detective Harry Mankowitz quickly arrives on the scene and, along with the help of some sleuths from the audience, untangles the wicked web of deceit, deception, and death that we are all to witness. Throughout the show, the audience will be able to write lines of dialogue, question the suspects, and even vote on the ending.
Join us at the Villa for an entertaining experience that you won’t forget! Grab a drink, sit back, have some laughs, and let’s solve this mystery. At Larry’s Late Show, you never know what you’re gonna get… or who is gonna get it.
