It's a Honolulu Who-dun-it With SHEAR MADNESS at MVT It's a Honolulu Who-dun-it With SHEAR MADNESS at MVT
by BWW News Desk on April 18, 2018 in Hawaii

Manoa Valley Theatre is proud to present a hilarious who-dun-it comedy that has been running continuously for the past 37 years in the United States live on stage from May 3 - 20. When the landlady who lives above a unisex hair salon is murdered, the audience gets involved in solving the crime by openly questioning the strange array of characters and attempting to solve the crime. All are suspect: the flamboyant hairdresser, the flirty yet ditzy assistant, the prim and proper uptight matron, and an older fellow who is a "used antique dealer." Much of the humor revolves around topical references to current events. It keeps every audience laughing as they try to outwit the suspects and catch the killer. New clues and up to the minute improvisation deliver a different show every night. Shear Madness is listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the longest running play in the history of the USA and has enjoyed productions staged all over the world.
