    Set in a local hair salon and with lines as up-to-date as the morning's news, Shear Madness is theatre with the audience as a central character. In this Boston institution, ongoing at the Charles Playhouse since 1980, the audience gets to help solve a murder mystery in a laugh-a-minute blend of whodunit and improvisational theater. The clues change every night and the laughs come fast and funny. This worldwide phenomenon is filled with up to the minute spontaneous humor and quicksilver improvisation. The audience becomes part of the action and gets to solve the crime. Voted "Best Comedy of the Year" seven times by the Boston Globe and recipient of the title "Best Play of the Year" by both the Chicago Sun-Times and the Philadelphia Enquirer, "Shear Madness" has also received the Raven Award from the Mystery Writers of America and has been inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame, the first play ever to receive that accolade. "Shear Madness" is listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the longest running play in the history of the USA.

      I wasn't sure what to expect, but from the very beginning, I was completely engaged and laughing continuously. What a great evening! I would definitely see this again and would recommend the show... Expand
