The Shark is Broken Behind the scenes on Jaws on the London stage
In 1974 in the waters off of Martha’s Vineyard, 3 men sat trapped on the Orca wishing they had a bigger boat. Amidst never-ending delays, bad weather, studio politics and a constantly broken mechanical co-star, Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider, and Richard Dreyfuss wasted away their days filming Jaws. As the timeline and budget stretched insecurities met with inflated egos in a shallow pool of rivalry and alcohol. Take a peek below deck at this hilarious insider fish tale. Written by Robert Nixon and Ian Shaw, son of Robert Shaw, inspired by his father’s journals, The Shark is Broken offers a unique look at the making off one of Hollywood's greatest summer smash-hits of all time.

Review: The Shark is Broken (Ambassador's Theatre)
Them be choppy waters….
With the theme music to the infamous Jaws on repeat, I could feel the trepidation building up as I headed to the Ambassadors Theatre to go aboard The Orca fishing boat, ready to set sail for the filming of Jaws. The facia needs more than a nod to it also – the shark and the teeth popping up from the roof of the theatre is simple but effective. The Ambassadors is an intimate enough space to house this production with ease and grace. However, in anticipating the popularity of the Shark, "you’re gonna need a bigger boat.’"
