AKWESASNE MOHAWK CASINO

"Frank, you and your actors were very professional as well as funny in Death Valley Beauty Pageant. My VIP's enjoyed your show so much that 95% of them want me to schedule another one with the same actors. The only thing I can say is - thank you so very much for giving our group a memorable fun-filled evening."

TONY TASCO, Player Development Manager

Hogansburg, NY


KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS

Murder Cafe is a "class act". Frank Marquette has Vegas experience and it shows. They provide promotional fliers for you and a professional crew and every year leave our group thoroughly entertained. Try them, you'll like them!

DUTCHESS COUNTY ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS

I spoke to Frank of Murder Café on behalf of the Dutchess County Association of Realtors.  We were planning a RPAC Fundraiser and wanted to do something different. He was extremely helpful & accommodating to our organization. He understood our goals and the challenge of bringing the show in on budget.  He took the time to meet with my Committee at the venue and offered several different themes for the show.  Frank guided us thru the entire process, even suggesting other options when we ran into difficulty.  He  prepared the artwork for the program, so advertising was easy.

Frank was in regular contact with me up to the event. At the event, Frank and his actors were professional and flexible. The reviews from our guests were amazing!! Everyone had fun. We more than accomplished our fundraising goal.

We have decided to have Murder Café again for our Spring RPAC fundraiser.

ARTS SOCIETY OF KINGSTON

"It was truly amazing to see the characters in my mystery novel, Mother, Murder and Me, brought to life by the Murder Cafe Players. Seeing and hearing them living and breathing as real people was a wonderful experience! An excellent troupe of actors!"

THE RHINECLIFF HOTEL

"We have been hosting dinner shows with Murder Cafe since Halloween 2010 and they're fantastic! The shows are funny, interesting, engaging and allow audience members to join in the fun if they want to but guests don't get pressured into standing up if they don't want to. There's something for everyone, there's a lot of great ad-libbing, endless laughs and a great three course dinner along the way. It's a great evening's entertainment and we look forward to hosting Murder Cafe far into the Christmas future. Ho! Ho! Ho!"

"Thanks so much for all the research, creativity and theatricality you put into Poe's Last Mystery. We've had very positive response.

LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL

"Tis sad news to report that Frank and Kristen Marquette's interactive dinner-theatre version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol has already closed after a nine performance run at Lawry's the Prime Rib restaurant. The show has enough fun - and would you belive it - solid acting to deserve a longer run. What made the evening work was the care taken in selecting cast members. They are, as a whole, the sort of talent directors of full-scale productions dream of."

ANTHONY DEL VALLE, Theatre Critic

Las Vegas, NV


THE GOLF CLUB AT MANSION RIDGE

"Our guest were highly entertained by Murder Cafe's production of Wedding in Transylvania. The actors were funny and professional and engaged the audience much to our delight. We look forward to Murder Cafe's next visit."

BRIAN SIMPSON, General Manager

Monroe, NY


WELLS FARGO BANK

"Our company Christmas party would have been a dull affair without Murder Cafe's production of A Merger to Die For. We definitely want them back next year!"

DIANA SAKAI, Corporate Marketing Manager

CRISCI BUILDERS

"For the past three years we have asked Frank Marquette to come up with a show for our company's holiday party. He never ceases to amaze me, he comes through every year! Our company members and their spouses look forward to a Murder Cafe show every year.

JOE CRISCI, Owner

Las Vegas, NV


ELGIN CITY EMPLOYEES CREDIT UNION

"Two years in a row we hired Murder Cafe to come up with a unique entertainment for our annual party of shareholders. We were totally entertained by Frank and his group and we look forward to see what they come up with next year."

CHRISTINE BROWN, President

Elgin, IL


LAWRY'S THE PRIME RIB RESTAURANT

"Each holiday season I rely on Murder Cafe to provide us with a fine quality show complete with professional actors who work well with our audiences and restaurant service staff. They succeed on multiple levels as Frank and Kristen's shows continue to gain critical praise for every detail including authentic costumes, musical interludes and in depth characterizations."
