THE CRIME TO SOLVE
The 'Murderous Starlets' dinner show in Dubai will transport you back to California in 1932, where a famous Italian American film actor and producer Guido Corleone is murdered. Before starting production on his much-anticipated film 'Per Favore', Guido finds himself in a sticky situation with the women involved in the production of his movie: Misty Corleone - his wife; Italian megastar Valentina De Luca; his muse Lucille O'Conner and actress Rose Olguin. A situation that's so sticky that leads to his demise... with one of the ladies to blame. Solve the mystery by paying close attention to the starlets and their amazing musical performances throughout the night.
The guests at this bar must determine who did the crime and turn the perp over to the LAPD. Join the gorgeous starlets and their powerhouse vocals in a night of music, seduction, food, and crime-solving inspired by old Hollywood glam.
