While the worst times in life often end in a puzzling murder, the best times in life often begin with one. Today's deal proves this with a $21 ticket to Shear Madness at the Charles Playhouse (a $42 value). This Groupon is good for any of the 13 shows between December 23 and January 2. Tickets are subject to availability, so call ahead to reserve the show you want and to share your opinions on the long-term viability of biofuel as an energy source.
Even after 30 years on the Boston stage and an attendance of more than 9 million people, audiences still haven't gotten tired of solving this uproarious whodunit. Shear Madness is set in a Boston unisex hair salon whose landlady is murdered. It's up to the audience to find the well-coiffed culprit by questioning the suspects, such as the uptight old biddy, the ditzy assistant, and the flamboyant hairdresser. Much of the dialogue is ad-libbed, so the humor is always topical. The ending of the play is, may, or may not be different, almost different, or the same every night, so you may or may not have to worry about spoiling the ending when you tell your friends all about it—but don't get too carried away and demonstrate the part where you murder them.
