The New York premiere of America’s longest running comedy is a whodunit set in a Hell's Kitchen hair salon, filled with up-to-the-minute humor and nail-biting suspense. More…
The set-up always remains the same, yet the script is rewritten to ensure the freshest, most relevant, even spontaneous humor—and a different ending every time. The audience plays along, too, questioning the suspects like a bona fide 'Sherlock Holmes,' as they try to solve the murder mystery down at the 'Shear Madness' salon.
