Jaws: The Movie: The Musical is a new, original musical about the making of a musical based on a movie adapted from the book by Peter Benchley.
Diving into the murky, uncharted waters of creating a brand new musical can be so hazardous, one might feel a little safer in a shark cage. No such luck for Alex, Ben and Chrissie, who are charged to bring to life the next big hit on Broadway. Desperate for ideas and pressed for time, they turn to the only proven trend for success on Broadway: Use a movie! This Wet Dream Team decides to bait and tackle one of the most heartwarming and touching stories ever brought to the screen - Jaws!
Turning this beloved classic movie into a musical has to be a surefire way to fill a theatre, right? Unfortunately, it isn't that simple for our team as they deal with shark activists, lazy producers, unusual actors and the wildly difficult task of getting a shark onto the stage, all while trying not to muddy the waters with their own tricky romances. Right away, one thing becomes painstakingly obvious; if they truly hope to bring a Great White Shark to the Great White Way, they’re going to need a bigger stage.
