SHEAR MADNESS Phoenix Theatre October 29 - November 30, 2014


Written by Paul Portner
Shear Madness is unlike any other theatre-going experience! This zany whodunit mixes elements of improvisation, stand-up and farce into a tangled web of madcap comedy where YOU, the audience, help solve the crime. Set in a present day Phoenix beauty salon, Shear Madness begins when the landlady upstairs is murdered. An undercover police lieutenant Nick (Gene Ganssle) and his eager assistant Mikey (Mark Jacobson) launch an investigation and a host of wacky suspects soon emerge. Associate Artistic Director Robert Kolby Harper has assembled an all-star cast of six powerhouse comedic performers. Including Phoenix Theatre favorites Elizabeth Brownlee (Les Misérables) and Pasha Yamotahari (The 39 Steps, Boeing Boeing) this multi-talented cast promises to keep you laughing from beginning to end! Celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, it’s no wonder Shear Madness holds the Guinness record for longest running play in the history of American Theatre. With an outcome that is never the same and topical jokes and references that change almost nightly, you’ll be dying to see this show again and again!
