Why See Bruce?


World Premiere

It's one the highest-grossing movies of all time, instilling in generations a fear of the ocean and revitalizing the psychological monster thriller, but before there was Jaws, there was Bruce - the film's unwieldy mechanical shark star with a tendency to break down as dramatically as any human diva. Based on Carl Gottlieb's memoir 'The Jaws Log', this exciting new musical from Richard Oberacker and Richard Tatulor makes its world premiere at the Seattle Repertory Theatre this summer, telling the story of the legendary Jaws shoot - with all the salty bits included!

What is the story?

It's the summer of 1974 and the small fishing town of Cape Cod has been invaded by a young up-and-coming director and his crew as they attempt to film Micheal Crichton's best-selling novel. But if it's not the terrible weather or the grumpy locals, it's the movie's star, a huge mechanical shark called Bruce, breaking down. Either way, the shoot runs over constantly, leaving cast and crew at the mercy of endless delays. We all know they finished it - but here's the inside story of how they managed it!
