The Shark is Broken Extends West End Run
Due to popular demand, The Shark is Broken will extend until 13 February 2022 at the Ambassadors Theatre, with tickets now on sale. The production made a big splash when it opened in the West End in October 2021, receiving critical acclaim and delighting audiences. Co-written by Robert Shaw’s son Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon, this brilliantly funny play, directed by Guy Masterson, reveals the hilarious and moving behind-the-scenes drama on Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster movie JAWS.
Tickets for the new booking period are on sale now at thesharkisbroken.com. New Sunday matinee performances at 2.30pm have been added to the schedule.
Producer Sonia Friedman said today ‘It’s with immense pride and joy that we’re announcing this extension of ‘The Shark is Broken’ at the Ambassador’s Theatre – put simply, we’re gonna need a bigger run! Having been suspended for 16 months in 2020, just before rehearsals were due to commence, it’s fantastic that this new play has finally opened in the West End to such a rapturous response, with our dedicated audiences travelling from all over the UK to see this entertaining yet profound look behind the scenes of one of the most famous films ever made.’
