What a blast.
PostedApril 6, 2013
I had a great time. The only problem I had is that the cars are designed for people who are shorter than me. I am 6' 2" and my head was hitting the ceiling while I was driving. Made my neck a little stiff by the time I was done.
Other than that, had the time of my life.

No, it's not your average bachelor's view of saying "I do." Marriage Can Be Murder is an award-winning interactive comedy and murder mystery dinner experience where the audience members become part of the show. If you liked the movie "Clue," then this is a dinner show that you will want to sink your teeth into.Anyone can be a suspect as actors are not readily apparent among the seemingly innocent guests. You might be seated next to another patron or maybe even the murder suspect, but only time will tell as the night unravels and more clues are revealed.Guests are seated at banquet tables. Salad and warm rolls are served first, followed by an entrée with your choice of chicken, beef or fish and cheesecake for dessert. DD, a sometimes ditzy and sometimes clued-in blonde, is your host for the evening. DD assigns some guests roles including doctor or pallbearer who are called to service each time someone is murdered."This guy has sax appeal," says DD as she stops by one male guest who looks like he would be a good fit for the processional band.Each guest has a game card that DD refers to as sleuth pad. The card has a space for your name and a place to write who the victim and killer are and what the motive is for each of the four murders that take place during the show.After the first murder, police Lt. Eric Post arrives. Wearing too short and fitted khaki shorts, Post makes the audience laugh before he even opens his mouth. He interrogates guests while consulting DD for some background information."This guy's name was Dan Druff?" asks Post."He was flaky," replies DD.The entire show is filled with funny one-liners like this as DD, Post and a few other wacky characters attempt to find the killer. After the main course is served, there's a short break where people can mingle, discuss the murders and get the names of other guests and potential suspects. During this time, some people get out of their seats while others chat amongst themselves. You can be as involved or uninvolved with this show as you want and still have a good time.Making murder a laughing matter doesn't seem possible, but husband and wife team Eric and Jayne Post, who star as the lieutenant and DD in the show, have no problem stirring up laughs with their comical banter. They created the four-dimensional theater concept more than 20 years ago. It's the longest-running dinner show in Las Vegas with more than 10 years of success."Guests keep coming back to see the show because they enjoy the interaction of characters on stage and in the crowd. Our audience members love that they are submerged into the action and with their reactions, each show takes on a different twist and turn," said Post.Marriage Can Be Murder combines comedy and suspense to keep you guessing through dessert. So get out your magnifying glass and detective hat for a night of mystery and fun.-- By Caroline Fontein

Great tour, guide was excellent
PostedApril 6, 2013
Fantastic time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave great insites to Las Vegas. We chose to do this tour on th first night we were there and it worked great. It helped us to identify where everything is, and what would be great to do on our free time.
Tour was at a great pace and no sense of bein rushed.

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. He started out as a headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is now LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and later moved to The Mirage. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report

Great show - He is excellent
PostedApril 6, 2013
The show was fantastic. I only wish the tickets had not said that we were not allowed to take pictures. Turned out the flash photography was allowed. I was forced to use my cell phone and the bright spot light made those pictures virtually useless.
Other than that, great show.

What a fantastic time
PostedApril 6, 2013
Wow, loved evry second of this. When we got there and found out we were walking my wife and I were concerned. We did this on Friday 29 Mar 13 on the 6th day of a 7 day vacation and our feet were worn to nubs from all our walking but the distance covered was short and the tour guide was fantastic. He was a lot of fun and really knew his stuff.
The only thing that might have helped would have been to have the tour start at 1 pm instead of 2. It ran a little longer than we thought and we had to rush to make our evening event.

I saw Terry Fator in Sept 2012. I'm coming to Vegas 2/2013, does Terry perform a different show from the 2012 show?

To the bet of my knowledge his act is very similar to others I have seen. There might be one or two new characters and songs but for the most part it will be the same.
