Edsa Shangri-La, Manila Presents Casino Fatale: A Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre

Edsa Shangri-La, Manila’s famed Paparazzi restaurant in cooperation with Get Real Theatre HK, brings back its highly successful Murder Mystery dinner theater series with its second installment, “Casino Fatale.” The four-course dinner theatre rate is set at PHP 3,450 net per person, with wine pairing at PHP 5,000 net. The dinner theatre includes pre-dinner cocktails featuring premium Banfi wines from Tuscany courtesy of Wine Depot, and runs for three nights from August 7 to 9, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.

The story is set in 1965 Las Vegas, with Inspector Slate on the hunt for a diamond thief when he later discovers a dead body under the black jack table. The body belongs to the diamond thief, Donnie 6 Fingers, who was in search for the Black Bacari Diamond of Jaipur.  Inspector Slate needs to find out what role the odd bunch of Doris Knight, the aging casino bombshell, Nervous Herman, her besotted card dealing beau, and Lord and Lady Twittington, from the Peak of Hong Kong,  play in the case before it’s too late.

In between courses, guests are able to play the role of super spies going on roller coaster rides of unexpected twists and turns, and solving mindboggling murder mysteries played out by the Get Real Theatre HK actors, all internationally heralded thespians. No two nights are ever alike as guests have a hand in how the Casino Fatale story unravels. Exciting prizes and surprises are in the offing for those with brilliant theories and lucky hunches.
