I love starting off my mornings with emails like this:
I just thought you’d like some feedback from our show Friday & Saturday.
WE are a pretty small venue and were hopeful we would have approx 50 guests per night. We had 53 & 57, so I was thrilled with the response. I previously attended a MMDT (Haley’s Games note: MMDT=murder mystery dinner theater – not ours) and HATED IT! The crowd was drunk and loud, the actors were below average and the night took too long. We had been there almost 5 hours, the actors took a break and there was no crime yet to solve….very disappointing. I wanted to do one and avoid those mistakes. So I hired local (extremely seasoned) actors and paid them, fed them during practices & the shows…we provided guests with a very nice buffet and set up our dining room so that every table had a great view of the “action”. I had a chance to visit every table before and after the show and can tell you that every guest (ages 14-90!!!!) said the same thing…”What a great time! Do it again!”
