Everything works in Shear Madness. And by ‘everything works,’ I mean that you will laugh until you no longer think you have it in you. It works when the actors interact with each other and it really works when a murder takes place and the tension mounts among the suspects. And the entire experience is made whole when the detectives look to the ‘witnesses’ – that’s the audience – to question the possible perpetrators.
