About

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 in the Kennedy Center's Theater Lab for almost 25 years, giving nearly 11,000 performances and is the second longest play in the history of American Theater (its sister production of Shear Madness in Boston is #1.)

PLEASE NOTE: Shear Madness performances from Jun. 19 to Nov. 1 will take place in the Family Theater.

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.
