The Shark Is Broken
If you’ve seen Jaws, then you’ll love The Shark Is Broken. Written by Jaws’ star Robert Shaw’s son, Ian Shaw’s behind-the-scenes drama sees Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss stuck on a boat in Cape Cod with a faulty mechanical co-star for company. First performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, The Shark Is Broken transfers to the Ambassadors Theatre this summer, so don’t miss out on what’s set to be the snappiest show in the West End!
One of the sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows in 2018, Six has now become a global musical phenomenon, nominated for five Olivier Awards in 2019 including best new musical. The historically-inspired show sees the six wives of Henry VIII take to the mic as they share their stories like a popstar! Running at the Arts Theatre to January 2021, as well as the Broadway transfer opening this year, there’s no stopping the Queendom!
After critically-acclaimed performances at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, Richard Gadd’s one-man play Baby Reindeer transferred to the Bush Theatre. The award-winning play sees Gadd share his personal experiences of being stalked for six years, stemming from a seemingly non-consequential action of giving a stranger a cup of tea. If you missed Baby Reindeer in Edinburgh, why not catch it in its five-week run at the Ambassadors Theatre.
After sell-out performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019, as well as Kathy Burke directing a West End star, it was no surprise that Honest Amy became an unmissable show. Now, as part of the Turbine Theatre’s inaugural season, you’ll be able to see Amy Booth-Steel perform her anecdotal one-woman play, filled with stories of common people. As Amy deals with catastrophic events, she comes out smiling on the other side in this inspiring theatre event you won’t want to miss.
After a sensational run at the Edinburgh Festival, catch Noise Boys at the Peacock Theatre later this year. Bringing their unique blend of musicianship, physical skill, infectious rhythms and world-class performer, it’s one of the craziest Edinburgh Fringe shows around! Sit back and be amazed by the charm and the sheer unadulterated talent of the Noise Boys.
