BREAKING NEWS: One of the most thrilling films of all time Jaws is making its way to the Musical Theater stage….. however with a twist. Many people don’t know about some Behind the Scenes drama that went into making it.
It has just been announced that Richard Oberacker and Robert Taylor (the creators of the Tony winning Bandstand) are joining forces to create a new musical entitled BRUCE. But first, the Broadway-bound show will have its world premiere in Seattle, Washington next year. It will play the Seattle Rep from May 27th-June 26th, 2022.
BRUCE takes place at a fishing Island in Cape Cod. It tells the behind the scenes story of a then-unknown Steven Speilberg as he sets out to create a film adaptation of the best-selling novel JAWS. However despite bad weather, hostile locals, delays, and an exploding budget, Spielberg and the team have to deal with a highly dysfunctional star named…. “Bruce” who happens to be a mechanical great white shark who is cast as the titular role.
The show will BOTH be directed and choreographed by Donna Feore.
Who is excited?!!
