Broadway Comedy Club's JAWS: THE MUSICAL Extended thru Sept 21
Just when you thought it was safe to go to the theatre, a shark swims right into your heart. JAWS: the Musical extends August 3rd & 25th September 15th & 21st at The Broadway Comedy Club, featuring book, music & lyrics by Wayne Henry, with musical direction by Clare Cooper and direction by Steven McElroy.
Jaws: the Musical is an over the top love story where a Manhattanite falls in love with a shark, people get eaten and marine biologists break into songs. Get hooked on the campiest, funniest, new musical to hit our shores! Featuring the songs “Fishing the Great White Way,” “At Night He Swims Home to Me,” and “When A Shark Attacked My Heart.”
Jaws: the Musical has been extended after a successful and nearly sold out July run at The Broadway Comedy Club. The musical originally won the 2002 Strawberry One-Act Festival (40 play elimination tournament) and was featured in Emerging Artists Theater’s 2007 Notes from a Page musical development series. The show has now resurfaced and with new music and extended material.
