Shear Madness

Reviews & Overrating

Thenet reviews


It’s been voted “BEST COMEDY OF THE YEAR” eight times in Boston, “BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR” in both Chicago and Philadelphia, and most recently won the 2014 Molière de la Comédie (The French Tony Award!). It’s even listed in the GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS as the longest-running play in the history of the USA The madness goes down at your not-so-typical hair salon, when suddenly the old lady upstairs gets mysteriously murdered and everyone’s dying to know WHODUNIT? The audience combs through the suspects, questioning the cast like a bona fide “Shearlock Holmes.” And the best part? It’s different every time you see it! Recommended for anyone over the age of 8. (Except pets—this isn’t the groomers!)
