THE SHOWS

On Stage This Month

Main Stage

Shear Madness

It’s been voted “BEST COMEDY OF THE YEAR” eight times in Boston and “BEST PLAY OF THE YEAR” in both Chicago and Philadelphia. It’s even listed in the GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS as the longest-running play in the history of the USA. Now, at long last, SHEAR MADNESS has made its long-awaited, first-ever arrival in New York.

The madness erupts at your not-so-typical New York hair salon, when suddenly the old lady upstairs gets mysteriously murdered and everyone’s dying to know WHODUNIT? The audience combs through the clues, questioning the suspects like a bona fide “SHEARLOCK HOLMES.” And the best part? It’s different every time you see it!
