Shear Madness is a silly whodunnit play that the audience decides the ending. It’s an entertaining beauty shop story.

Great interactive mystery who-dunnit that involves everyone. Many laughable moments and loved the intimacy of the small theatre. Highly recommend not sitting too close as there are obstructions on the stage that make viewing from farther back much better.

So, off Broadway can take you into some intimate spaces.... and Shear Madness does just that.... The Davenport has a single aisle, 127 seats, and there's not a bad seat in the house. This is a theatre experience worth having. The show is kept fresh...More
