Shear Madness

Shear Madness is Boston’s hilarious comedy-who-dunit where the audience solves the crime. Set in a unisex hair salon that is the scene of a whacky murder, the play is filled with up-to-the-minute spontaneous humor and is different every time you see it. Shear Madness holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest running non-musical play in American theater history. The show has run in 68 cities worldwide and is also currently running in Washington DC at the John F Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.
