Shear Madness

Daily | 3:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Shear Madness is interactive, immersive, and irresistible!

Set in present-day Georgetown, Shear Madness engages locals and visitors alike as armchair detectives to help solve the scissor-stabbing murder of a famed concert pianist who lives above the Shear Madness unisex hairstyling salon. The show combines up-to-the-minute improvisational humor and a mixture of audience sleuthing to deliver a unique performance each night.

With more than 17,800 performances at the Kennedy Center, Shear Madness is the longest-running play in the history of American Theater.
