The Shark Is Broken

The behind-the-scenes new comedy about the making of the iconic blockbuster “Jaws.”

or Call 1.800.BROADWAY x2



FADE IN: The open ocean, 1974. Production on ‘Jaws’ is delayed…again. The film’s lead actors – theatre veteran Robert Shaw and young Hollywood hotshots, Roy Schneider and Richard Dreyfuss – are crammed into a too-small boat, entirely at the mercy of foul weather and a faulty mechanical co-star. Alcohol flows, egos collide, and tempers flare on a chaotic voyage that just might lead to cinematic magic…if it doesn’t sink them all.

Ian Shaw (War Horse and Common, National Theatre) stars as his father, actor Robert Shaw, in a piece inspired by his iconic performance as Quint and his stories of choppy waters on-set. THE SHARK IS BROKEN is a moving and brilliantly hilarious behind-the-scenes drama and celebration of movie history.

The sold out, critically-acclaimed West End hit comes to Broadway this summer. “Ian Shaw gives one of the most exhilarating theatrical performances of the Year” [5 stars, Evening Standard], “Sensational Fun” [5 stars, Sunday Express], “Do Not Miss” [5 stars, Sunday Mirror], and “Absolutely spellbinding” [4 stars, Daily Mail].
