Shear Madness

About:

NOTE: Shear Madness performances for October--December 2015 go on sale at Noon on Sunday, August 2, 2015.

Shear Madness is the comedy whodunit that lets the audience solve the crime!

Set in present-day Georgetown, Shear Madness engages locals and visitors alike as armchair detectives to help solve the scissor-stabbing murder of a famed concert pianist who lives above the Shear Madness unisex hairstyling salon. The show combines up-to-the-minute improvisational humor and a mixture of audience sleuthing to deliver a unique performance each night.

Shear Madness has been running at the Kennedy Center for 26 years, giving more than 12,000 performances, and is the second longest play in the history of American Theater (its sister production of Shear Madness in Boston is #1.)

Shear Madness performances are ongoing. If you don't see your date listed, please contact your group sales associate to hold your preferred date now or check back for future performances.

NOTE: To view the calendar for performances from Sep. 29, 2015 to Dec. 31, 2015, please visit the Shear Madness 15-16 event page.

Performance Timing: 2 hours, with one intermission.
