From the show:

It’s a dark and stormy night at the Donati family restaurant, as those lovable oddballs Dante and Olga Donati prepare to auction off their legendary 2-pound truffle. When the mushroom is stolen and a murder discovered, it is up to YOU and the rest of the Truffles family to discover “whodunnit” before the legendary mob boss Don Fiola puts the Donatis out of business for good! Enjoy a sit-down dinner as YOU the audience participates in this musical murder mystery. From the creators and fans of the original long-running production, this re-imagined Truffles… invites you to a one-of-a-kind immersive theater experience, an evening of playful jazz, poisoned wine, and proper comedy.

Quirky, Entertaining

See it if Delicious full-sized meal (chicken, salmon, risotto) w/app & dessert. A few get called up on stage very briefly. Fun zany plot/songs.

Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Dated, Disappointing

See it if you ran out of other fun dinner shows. The females singers were good, and the food was real good, but the show needs a re-write.

Don't see it if you value a decent script. This wasn't a murder mystery, it was more of someones odd thought of a show, that really does not translate.

Also I try to find something good about a show when I see it. When the fema... Read more Read less

See it if You're looking for a light and silly evening of farce, jazz, interactive comedy, and good truffle infused cuisine.

Don't see it if You're looking for a though-provoking evening of theatre. This is light and fun, and doesn't take itself too seriously.

"A pleasant evening in the theater...not one of the more memorable theatrical mysteries but proves to be diverting entertainment nevertheless. Although the effort can't be seen, the game cast works hard to entertain whether they are singing, fighting or just causing mayhem."
