Comedy Theater Productions began operations in 1986 offering America's FIRST murder mystery dinner theater, Mystery Cafe in Cambridge, MA. In the basement of the Cantab Lounge, theatergoers filled the theater five nights a week for Death & Taxes by Phil Lebovits (now in Hollywood). Since then, oh what a ride it's been. Mystery Cafe's were licensed to theater producers in 21 cities in the U.S. and one in Toronto, Canada, and another, Copenhagen, Denmark. The first seven years producer David Goldstein taught producers in San Diego, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Dallas, Atlanta, Tampa, Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Jose, Providence, Portland, ME, and so many others how to run and operate a murder mystery dinner theater.
