BWW Review: WHEN THE SHARK BITES at Open Eye Theatre Photo BWW Review: WHEN THE SHARK BITES at Open Eye Theatre
by Braden Joseph - Aug 15, 2019

Currently playing at Open Eye Theatre is a delightful and laidback show that audiences seem to love. a?oeWhen The Shark Bitesa?? by Chronofon is a play...or a concert...it's actually a bit difficult to pin down what category this piece is in. But, nevertheless, it continues to entertain the audience and isn't that what matters? This performance follows the lives of Bertolt Brecht, Elisabeth Hauptmann, Lotte Lenya, and Kurt Weill. The show mainly focuses on the time surrounding World War I and a bit of World War II, but that doesn't seem to be the focus of the piece.
