Shear Madness

My family and I just got back from the highly enjoyable Shear Madness at the Chicago Theater.

Brian Sills and Benjamin Reigel stole the show as hair dresser Tony Whitcomb and Chicago cop Nick Pulaski, respectively.

It's a murder mystery comedy set in a hair salon and packed with up-to-the-minute jokes as well as some old chestnuts they had to dust off. It includes audience participation (we get to play detective! In fact, my Mom was singled out and was met with some barbs by the suspect she was accusing - I won't give anything away but we laughed so hard tears sprung forth.)

I highly recommend everyone see this fantastic play.

Oh it was, ebbtide. I have so much fun with her - especially when she's embarrassed in public. (Becuase that means it's not ME.)
