There’s just a month left to go before the critically acclaimed The Shark is Broken finishes its extended run at the Ambassadors Theatre. The production made waves from the start, in October 2021, and the fun ends on 13th February 2022. If you’re looking for a funny production based on real life with a touching side, this one’s for you. The year is 1974. The location is Martha’s Vineyard. And the stars of the show are drunk. What’s the worst that can happen?
Who’s involved in The Shark Is Broken?
One of the most popular thrillers of the 20th century, Jaws horrified millions of movie lovers. Almost fifty years later, Jaws still terrifies audiences. But there’s a funny side to the story behind the film, and that’s what this ‘brilliantly funny and deeply moving’ production reveals. The three stars’ boat is awash in foul weather, the model of the shark is broken, and the mood is becoming increasingly dark.
