A ‘Twin Peaks’ Parody Dinner Show

Dinner theatre show at Cafe Nordo
(Cafe Nordo)


Café Nordo is currently presenting Lost Falls, a murder mystery dinner theatre presentation. Set within Café Nordo’s Culinarium, Lost Falls tells of the gruesome (but funny) murder of two chefs at a roadhouse restaurant on Highway 2. Special Agent Eliot Pennis called to the scene of the crime and soon discovers the malevolent forces that are threatening the small, spooky town. As with all good mysteries, everyone is a suspect including the theatre patrons/diners.

Inspired by the TV series Twin Peaks, Café Nordo says the story of Lost Falls begins with a dinner that is disguised as breakfast with a “savory mashed potato donut served with coffee gravy.”

Award winning composer Annastasia Workman has written a score that integrates Angelo Badalamenti style cool jazz and raucous roadhouse blues with Devin Bannon on lead vocals and a live band including Matt Manges on drums and Dave Pascal on bass. The cast of Lost Falls includes Gregory Award Winner Ryan Higgins, Ayo Tushinde, Opal Peachey, Carol Thompson, Ronnie Hill, and Laura Dux.


Each ticket to Lost Falls includes a 5 course "breakfast" where even the donuts are not what they seem. There is the option of purchasing a ticket with a paired cocktail flight, or purchasing beverages a la carte at the show. The prix fixe menu offers omnivore, vegetarian and gluten free options.

Lost Falls plays through June 25, 2017. Performances are at 8:00 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. Standard tickets are $67 and Guest with Flight tickets are $92; both can be ordered online. Café Nordo is located at 109 S. Main St., Seattle 98104. For more information, visit the Café Nordo website.
