Actor / comedian KEVIN O’BRIEN is well known for his “killer entertainment”. For almost twenty years he and his actors have been performing his interactive comedy murder mysteries literally all over the world.
He explains how his mysteries work: “As the audience arrives they are assigned new identities for the evening — some of them becoming suspects in the crime. The shows are very fast-paced and funny, half scripted and half improvised. As the mystery unfolds, a murder occurs, and the audience must figure out ‘who dunnit’. People have a tremendous time hamming it up.”
Indeed, O’Brien and his actors play multiple parts in each of his mysteries — sometimes playing as many as five characters per show. In addition, each mystery has a different theme, which is plain from titles such as DEATH AT DUCK DYNASTY, I’LL BE HOMICIDAL FOR CHRISTMAS and MAYBERRY R.I.P.
O’Brien and his actors are on the road year round, and have even performed at military bases as far away as Korea and Australia. Kevin’s troupe appears regularly at several wineries across the United States. In addition, they have performed at the Governor’s Mansion in Missouri, and for HBO in New York. He and his actors can be seen worldwide on Kevin’s television series, The Theater of the Word on EWTN.
The mystery dinner includes food and the show, as well as a wine tasting. Glasses or bottles or wine or beer will be available at an additional cost. Tickets are $50 per person. For tickets or more information call Ruby Moon Winery at (270) 830-7660.
