Show Synopsis

“Murder at the Starlight Bistro”  takes place during the 10th Anniversary of Claire Stevens’ restaurant, the Starlight Bistro. Claire Stevens has prepared an elaborate evening for her guests involving great food, beautiful music, and a good time. However, things immediately start falling apart. The order for the food that evening was incorrect and they do not have enough food to serve their guests so panic ensues in the kitchen. The waitstaff start getting antsy and begin spilling all of their drama to their customers. The audience learns a very personal amount of information about the characters before one of the waiters drops dead. Two detectives emerge and do their best to solve the mystery while dealing with some of their own issues. In this murder mystery filled with an absurd amount of staff drama, the audience will work with the detectives on a thrilling journey to determine who the killer is.
