I’d challenge anyone to sit through this show and not get utterly invested in figuring out whodunit, whilst smiling at the comfort that this 80’s drama brings.”

“It didn’t take long for Benzie to have the audience in stitches and he had the whole crowd in the palm of his hand the entire evening.”

"For a funny, campy evening, there is little that could beat Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote’s unique qualities and Benzie’s wit and charm. Personally this reviewer can’t wait to revisit Cabot Cove. Never mind 'whodunnit', more like 'yougottadoit!"
