Welcome to your Friday ATOM Las Vegas / A Touch of Mystery history update ....

From 2000 - 2002 we continued to perform our mysteries for Corporate events and Casinos in Las Vegas. In 2002, A Touch of Mystery was hired by Royal Caribbean Cruises to install 7 stories on their Vision & Radiance class ships. So, I got very busy and wrote 1-2 new stories a month.

ATOM 1993 -1999...

Welcome to your next installment of the history of ATOM Las Vegas / A Touch of Mystery ...

Between 1993 & 1999, A Touch of Mystery continued to perform for Corporate events and Dinner Theatres in Harrisburg, PA and Sacramento onboard the Delta Queen Steamboat. In 1999 I moved to Las Vegas to perform in production shows. While there, our logo got a fresh new look (see below) and we began performing for Corporations, private parties, fundraisers and Casinos! Our first outing with a casino was Circus Circus for their VIP event. It was called THE $25,000 Murder Mystery. There were 650 guests (10 teams) and only 1 team guessed the right answer and won $25,000!

The show was ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE & MUSIC and it was a night to remember. This was the start of a whole new chapter for A Touch of Mystery!

Be on the lookout for our next Mysterious installment!

Here is the next installment of the history of ATOM Las Vegas / A Touch of Mystery:

In 1993 I moved to New York to pursue my theatre / acting career. I immediately landed roles in Summer Stock and a performing gig on American Hawaii Cruises in Hawaii. Toward the end of 1993, I moved to Harrisburg, PA where I continued to perform and started booking the murder mysteries for Corporate Events as well as on board The Pride of The Susquehanna Dinner Cruise.

It was at this time that I resurrected ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE & MUSIC - my 2nd musical murder mystery with characters such as Vinnie Vegas and the Vinnettes, The DIVA & Troy Tritone.

While in Harrisburg, I wrote THE REUNION and we performed it for the first time for Merck Pharmaceuticals. We had a lot of fun with that show! It was done for Halloween and I wrote several of their drugs in to the story.

Stay tuned for the next installment and have a Mysterious weekend!

Here's your Friday update on the history of A Touch of Mystery:

From 1986-1990, A Touch of Mystery performed our mysteries for private parties & fundraisers in Los Angeles. In 1990 I moved to the Bay Area where we began performing for special events at high end apartment communities. In 1992, we began performing on The River City Queen (one of Sacramento's Dinner Cruises) with a weekly show as well as at Lou LaBonte's Dinner Theater. This is where MYSTERY AT THE EARTHQUAKE SALOON was born!

Stay tuned for the next installment and have a mysterious weekend!

More A TOUCH OF MYSTERY history ...

In 1986 THE CATERED AFFAIR made it's premiere. It was performed at a private party in Beverly Hills and the guests didn't know they were attending a murder mystery. The characters were part of a catering service and one of the scenes called for Patti Perkie & Carla O'Day to fight over a gentleman that came to the bar to order a drink.

The scene started and the gentleman interrupted the ladies arguing over him by saying "That's ok, I really don't want a drink anyway." He walked away from the bar and went directly over to the host of the party and inquired; "Where in the word did you find these people?!"

When our lead character, Mrs. Stefano came running down the stairs screaming that her husband was dead in the bedroom, guests began screaming; "Who's dead, who's dead? and CALL 911!" 

Once the Inspector took over and started the investigation, the guests began laughing for the next hour as they solved the mystery!
