My husband hired them for my 50th birthday party, and everyone had a great time. My friend Jane even flew in from England for the party. My party was set in 1920s Chicago, and everyone dressed the part (you are encouraged to do so to get into character). Don Moon, one of the owners, was the detective trying to figure out who killed the nightclub owner.

If you are looking for something outside of the box for a party, Red Herring Productions is the company to call for a fun and exciting time.
