Theater Lab at The Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C.

The 388-seat theater has been home to Shear Madness since August 1987 and is America's Second Longest Running Play. When The Kennedy Center opened in 1971, Washington began to draw the best of concerts, dance, musicals, opera, and drama to its five theaters. President Eisenhower proposed the idea for a national cultural center in 1958. John F. Kennedy had also strongly supported the concept, and after his assassination the center was dedicated to him as a living memorial. Designed by Edward Durell Stone, The Kennedy Center now presents more performing arts than any other institution in the United States. The Lab also occasionally hosts free Millennium Stage performances. 2012 marked an entire renovation to the Theater Lab. The renovation included a complete seating and equipment overhaul, plus upgrades to backstage areas, support space and stage access for performers. All the performance lighting was converted to low-energy consuming LED lighting. Check out the Time-Lapse Video of the Shear Madness set build.

Stage II at The Charles Playhouse in Boston, MA

Boston's Shear Madness takes place in the 199-seat cabaret-style Stage II theatre in the Charles Playhouse, the Theater District's oldest playhouse. Stage II theatre is complete with a full-service bar. It was built in 1839 as the Fifth Universalist Church by renowned architect Asher Benjamin. In 1864 it became the first synagogue in Boston before its transformation during Prohibition into a speakeasy called The Lido Venice. In the 1940s the upstairs was converted into a nightclub, Storyland, while downstairs reverberated with hot jazz by artists such as Fats Waller and Earl Fatha Hines. The Playhouse quickly moved to the forefront of America's regional theatre movement, premiering works by Brecht, O'Neill, Pirandello and Tennessee Williams and featuring performances by many stars-to-be including Al Pacino, Jill Clayburgh and Jane Alexander. Today, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Shear Madness is such an integral part of Boston that the Mayor renamed Warrenton Street "Shear Madness Alley." 2014 marked exciting interior upgrades, new facade sign and canopy featuring color changing LED lighting.
