Everybody is kung-fu fighting across the USA in the mid-1970s, but in the waters around New England's Amity Island, people are being eaten alive, one by one, by a Great White Shark gone rogue …
Of course you remember Steven Spielberg's big movie, Jaws – the prototypical summer blockbuster – which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, right?
Yes, it's the gang that brought the world live-action, goofy-propped, over-the-top renditions of Jurassic Park, Aliens, Robocop, and more. They're back again, hallelujah, this time performing the whole Brody/Hooper/Quint shark hunt for your laugh-wracked pleasure. Who? Listen: Byron Brown is Chief Brody; Kirk Johnson is Quint; John Merriman is Hooper; Sam Eidson is Larry Vaughn; Nathan Sakulich is Ellen Brody; and Carlos Larotta is the Deputy.
The indefatigible Eidson also directs … and right now we're directing your attention to this link.
Because that link will take you to where you can get tickets to see the bloodsoaked, comedic terrorfest at Scottish Rite Theatre on Fri-Sat., July 3-11, at 8pm – right here in the good ol' non-shark-infested ATX.
Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain …
