About

Shear Madness is the interactive 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.

With more than 13,000 performances at the Kennedy Center, Shear Madness is the second longest-running play in the history of American Theater (its sister production of Shear Madness in Boston is #1.)
