The change in date, according to a press statement, is due to "a series of construction delays on the custom theatre at Town Square Las Vegas." Opening night is now scheduled for Jan. 2, 2009, at 7 PM.
Shear Madness, according to press notes, "engages visitors and locals alike as armchair detectives to help solve the scissor-stabbing murder of a famed concert pianist who lives above the Shear Madness hairstyling salon. The show combines up-to-the-minute improvisational humor and a mixture of audience sleuthing to deliver a truly unique performance each night."
In a previous statement Shear Madness executive producer Terrence R. Williams said, "The show's unique concept is a perfect match for the unique setting that Town Square offers. We're very excited to bring Shear Madness to Las Vegas."
Show times in Vegas will be Tuesday-Sunday evenings at 7 PM with matinees Saturdays and Sundays at 3 PM.
