I went TWICE it was sooo good and tons of fun!!!!! – I loved this show. The first time I went I was invited by my older sister. Her work took their entire staff as their christmas party. It was a blast! My sister got up and danced with grandma and everything - it was so funny I was crying! I knew my husband would love it so I surprised him on his birthday and took him. This sort of thing is so totally out of his element - he hates musicals - but he LOVED this. It I think he had more fun than I did! It's great to sit around and meet the strangers at your table and share good drinks and good food. Anyone thinking of going - should just GO! It's totally worth it and it's not going to be around much longer...Enjoy!!
Editorial Review – Interactive Portland dinner theater gets diners involved in hilarious, improvised action while they enjoy a four course Italian meal.
Lots of Laughs and a Great Baang for your Buck!!! – We went last night to show for my mom's birthday and we had such a great time and she LOVED it. I was a little nervous because sometimes these can be over the top, but it was hilarious! My compliments to the actors and actresses, you guys were great. My mom really liked having the actor/actresses interact with her and make her feel a part of everything. The price is GREAT for dinner (which was pretty good but you don't get dinner until about 9 but there are meats, cheeses, bread, etc to snack on during the first part of the show) and a GREAT show! Be sure to show up early so you can get your rump reading! We sat in the "second row" of tables and they were still awesome seats. I highly recommend this for a fun night out and be prepared to get some good belly laughs in. What a fun night! Thanks to all the cast and crew!!! You guys were all awesome!
FUN ~ LAUGHS ~ and FOOD what more could you ask for!? – This place was amazing. My best friend and I went for my 31st b-day and oh-my did we have a blast. My cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing sooooo much. Everyone was awesome, loved the cast. Can't say enough good things about it. We had a great time. I tell everyone i know to go see Who Stole My Dead Husband. OH~ and the dinner was good too, But the entertainment tops the night.
What a blast!!!! – I just wanted to say.........fun, fun, fun!!!!! We had such a good time Saturday
night!!! That was just great!!!! I have to tell you that we were on
are way home and one of the gals said she thought Grandma was a good
dancer. I piped in and said she was okay, but Jimmy was
a good dancer.......they all laughed and told me it was the same person. I
had no idea!!! I think I was just having too much fun to notice.
The food was great!!!! The show was wonderful!!! We all had just a blast!!!!!!!
I can't wait to go again and bring my Husband!!!
What a refreshing suprise – I took my wife last night for our anniversary not knowing what to expect and wow were we surprised. The show was fantastic, the food was incredible, the singing was amazing and we laughed our butts off. I found a package deal online specifically for anniversary's and when we got there they had roses already on the table, chocolates, wine and two glasses with their logo to take home, oh and a free picture. I had to write about them because they made me look so good to my beautiful bride. Thanks to Candi in the box office for helping me with that and I will tell everyone I know about the show! -Scott
Incredibly fun! – Oh my god! This was so amazing, we found out about it day of show yesterday from the article in the Columbian so I made my husband take me. I don't remember when we has so much fun, the actors are amazing and the singing was incredible. I just read the coments on here and saw a bad one so I wanted to tell everyone not to miss this opportunity they must have been to a diffrent show. I didn't find out how long it's going to be running for but I hope a while, I want to do a girls night out! 5 Stars and were going back!
Great experience! – This show is really one of a kind! From the moment you walk through the door you are transported to a different world full of eating, singing and family. The cast does an excellent job of pulling you in and making you feel like part of their family. Food was good and there was plenty to go around. A great experience with a group or you can come for a date and have fun meeting your neighbors at the table!
Mediocre show with obnoxious management – Who stole my dead husband: a remarkable waste of an evening.
First you must stand in a dingy, cramped hall for about half an hour with horrible quality pixelized pictures as the only 'decoration.' Then you must endure the manager's awkward attempts at being witty (I believe his name was Lauren?), an unpleasant person, to say the least. The entire staff was overly conceited and pompous about their sad little jobs at an obscure dinner theatre. The food was bland and cold when we finally received it. The decoration of the dining area/theater was full of fake grapes, christmas lights, etc. (almost everything possible to think of combining the themes tacky + italian). the actors were good but the entire show seemed awkward and arranged poorly. The tickets are ridiculously overpriced, too.
I recommend Burgerville, it's actually worth the price and the food is better (and it happens to be right across the street. Classy, huh?)
It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy your evening with Who Stole My Dead Husband. However, I would like to address the specific complaints that you outline in your review. First, the decorations used in our theater are reflective of the vision of our writer - who happens to be an Italian that was born and raised in Brooklyn. It is meant to be a little "tacky" and over the top. In addition, I am unsure how the delivery of cold food to your table escaped the radar of every person working the event on the evening that you attended, but I can assure you that your experience in that regard is certainly not typical (nor anything I have ever heard of happening at one of our performances). The entire show is not meant to be simply observed by our audiences, but to create an experience that you are a part of. That starts at the door, when you are greeted by Loren who will break the ice with you and invite you into the show. Please respond to email@example.com
More Than Dinner and a Show – If you are looking for the most unique night out in town than you have to go see Who Stole My Dead Husband. My husband is a wanna be Italian who is addicted to anything that even hints of garlic. This was more than dinner and a show. It is a total immersion into the world of "Brooklyn Italian." The cast was great and so was the food. The best part was that my husband, who is a big eater, was so full after dinner that he wants to go back just for the food. It's like sitting around the table at a holiday with this crazy Italian family that sings and performs while you eat. If you saw Tony and Tina's Wedding, you will LOVE this show. It's a one of a kind event that you will not want to miss. Tickets are hard to get so be prepared to make plans in advance.
