Comedy play Shear Madness holds the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest-running play in the history of the American Theatre. Set today in a hairstyling salon that becomes the scene of a zany crime, the play is filled with up-to-the minute, spontaneous humor and is delightfully different every time you see it.
The murder of landlady Isabel Czerny kicks off the audience involvement as they ask the actors questions and attempt to solve the crime. The cast improvise, altering the outcome of events ensuring each show has a different ending.
Characters include an outgoing homosexual barber, his cheeky but slightly dumb assistant, an elder lady with a very traditional outlook and an older man who used to be an antiques dealer. Current events play a central role to the dialogue meaning that this record-breaking play never dates.
