A fun and upbeat experience cross between improv, dinner theatre, and a play. A nice alternative to standard theatre performances. The audience participation was a lot of fun and the cast were very engaging. Every performance is a different...continued

It was a very fun show. Make sure to arrive a little bit early so you can get good seats. Also let them know something special about you, and your group so they can insert it in the show. I am from ITALY and they made a reference to it.

About the Ticket Supplier: Shear Madness

Now in its 35th year, the flagship Shear Madness production opened in Boston back in January 1980, and is still going strong! Having been performed over 10,000 times, Shear Madness holds the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest-running play in the history of the American theatre. Shear Madness may be marking its 10,000th performance but the whodunit has stayed in great shape, retaining the body, bounce and shine of its debut nearly 24 years ago. Part of the success is due to the mix of exhilarating audience sleuthing and up-to-the-minute improvisational humor that guarantees a different show every night. The cast mines the newspapers daily for timely nuggets for the script. The Wall Street Journal calls Shear Madness, “One of the great successes in theatre history.” Shear Madness is performed eight times a week.
