Schedule and Tickets

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.

Performance Timing: 2 hours, with one intermission.
