DAEHANGNO ART MADANG

From June 6: “Shear Madness.” One of the longest-running American plays is back in Seoul after its successful 2006 run. Those interested in detective stories might enjoy this who-done-it set in a hair salon. But what makes this play unique is that the ending is different every night as audience members solve the crime themselves, by listening for clues, and questioning the characters during the performance.

The story of the play is the same as the original, which opened in Boston in 1980. The lines of the characters have been tweaked a little, however, to suit Korean audiences. The play will be directed by Byun Jeong-joo, known for “Come to See Me,” and “Koreans.”

Tickets for the show are 20,000 won.

The show will be staged at 8 p.m. from Tuesday to Thursday, 4 and 8 p.m. on Fridays, and 3 and 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays. There are no shows on Mondays.

THE NATIONAL THEATER OF KOREA

June 7 to 15: “The New Parade, Waikiki Brothers!” The popular musical “Parade, Waikiki Brothers” is back with a new name, “The New Parade, Waikiki Brothers!” The musical is based on the Korean film “Waikiki Brothers” (2001). The story is about people living on hope, despite the harsh realities of the 1970s and 1980s. According to Seoul Musical Company, not only has the name of the musical changed, but the characters’ names have been changed to distinguish the musical from the original movie. To broaden the musical’s appeal, popular songs such as Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” and Jaurim’s “HaHaHa Song” have been added. Rounding out the bill are musical stars Moon Hye-young, from “Aida;” Lim Chul-hyeong, from “The Full Monty;” and Cho Byong-gon, from the 2006 version of “Parade, Waikiki Brothers.

Tickets range from 20,000 won to 80,000 won.
