"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


"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."


Las Vegas, NV


"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


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!

Marlboro, NY


"Murder Cafe presents a surprising mix of quality comedy, drama and music that has filled a niche. In some ways this is theatre for people who don't go to the theatre, and they're never disappointed." - Marcy Groll, Vanderbilt House, Philmont, NY


We were planning a RPAC Fundraiser and wanted to do something different. He was extremely helpful & accommodating to our organization. Frank Marquette 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, and 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.


Fishkill, NY


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  future."

-Regina Bei, Cold Spring, NY
