We all know the Jaws music, but do you know everything that happened during the filming? After making a splash at last year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Shark is Broken transfers to the Ambassadors Theatre this May. Written by Jaws star Robert Shaw’s son, Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, imagine what happened when the cameras stopped rolling in this hilarious production.
Ian Shaw stars as Robert Shaw, playing the role of his father who played Quint in Jaws. His theatre credits include War Horse at the National Theatre, as well as a production of Much Ado About Nothing in the West End.
Demetri Goritsas will play Roy Schieder, who played Police Chief Martin Brody in Jaws, previously appearing in Mr Burns at the Almeida Theatre. Liam Murray Scott makes his West End debut in The Shark is Broken, completing the trio of actors, playing Richard Dreyfuss, who starred as Matt Hooper in Jaws.
Set on Cape Cod in 1974, audiences meet Jaws stars Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss. They’re at a loss that shooting on Jaws has stopped, and they’re stuck on a boat. With lots of alcohol and ambition between them, nothing seems to be going their way, until they’re met by three grinning great white sharks.
A behind-the-scenes look at the filming of Jaws, The Shark is Broken gives audiences a one-of-a-kind insight into the creation of one of Hollywood’s iconic twentieth-century dramas.
