About Us

Public and Corporate Boston Events

 Experience. Quality. Reputation.

It all started over 30 years ago at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, the birth of Mystery Cafe – America’s First Murder Mystery Dinner Theater in 1988 opening with a show called Death & Taxes.  It was a hit from the start and it expanded quickly to over 21 cities in the US and Canada and one in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Here in New England, producer David Goldstein and his team have been running shows weekly as he has launched new shows and events as well as a Global Team Building company.  Now, after almost 30 years and thousands of public and corporate events later, the team behind Mystery Cafe has created so many great programs that we are bringing them here under one, virtual roof – Head First Events!

Here’s what you’ll find at Head First Events:

Mystery Cafe – We’re still going strong after 31 years with weekly dinner shows in Boston at the Elephant & Castle Restaurant and our popular Clue Live Mansion Murder Mysteries at the MIT Endicott House in Dedham. Our traveling troupe is available locally and nationally to perform for corporate events, social events in restaurants, boats and even trains.

The Haunted Dinner Theater – Our family friendly division started in Salem, MA – the Halloween Capital of the World – then spent 13 years in Williamsburg, VA.  We returned to our roots in Salem in 2014 and now every fall our seasonal mystery featuring music, magic, and special effects and can be found at the Hawthorne Hotel.  This fall we’ll be bringing our very popular show Clue Live to the Library of the Hawthorne Hotel combining the best of both worlds.

School of Chocolate – We’ve been known to follow our passions and chocolate was an easy passion to follow.  We started Boston’s first Chocolate Tours as Boston Chocolate Tours and also Boston’s First Chocolate Workshop with Sweet Genius Season 2 that has been running weekly for the past 9 years.  Corporate chocolate tastings, chocolate team building and of course chocolate and wine workshops are available nationwide.
