A fast, fun, and clever detective drama that spawned the classic "movie of the week" COLUMBO series.

The Alchemist Theatre rarely does "nostalgic" shows but we'd love you to join us for a retro-inspired evening of entertainment including vintage commercials in the cocktail lounge, classic brandy old-fashioneds, traditional bloody Marys, and of course a charming detective in a rumpled jacket who would rather carry a basset hound than a pistol!

Front three rows include a free brandy old fashioned, bloody mary, or 1/2 off any other bar item.

No extra fees or sales tax added to ticket price.

Free street parking.
