The Shark is Broken

Group Minimum: 10

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].
