The production began in the summer of 1976 in Upstate New York. It was directed by Bruce Jordan who was a former high school teacher. Marilyn Abrams, who was also a former school teacher, was acting in the play. Abrams and Jordan became good friends and even after the play ended their friendship did not. When the first year of Shear Madness came around Jordan had to do a lot of work to it. He wanted the audience to be able to interact as much as possible with solving the case. Soon the play turned into a show that was different every time it was performed. A little bit later it occurred to Jordan that the play would do well as a comedy. Soon after that the play was a big hit in the three major cities, Boston, Las Vegas, and Washington DC. This is a show that you do not want to miss when vacationing in Las Vegas.
