Atlantic Theater Company has just announced that the New York premiere of Rolin Jones' comedy The Jammer, directed by Jackson Gay, has now been extended through Sunday, February 17 in advance of its opening last night, Tuesday, January 22. Check out photos from the festivities below!
THE JAMMER features the celebrated ensemble cast of Patch Darragh (The Glass Menagerie) , Dan Domingues (Atlantic's The Cherry Orchard), Christopher Jackson (In the Heights), Billy EuGene Jones (Passing Strange), Keira Naughton (The Rivals), Kate Rigg (Dogeaters), Jeanine Serralles (The Maids), Greg Stuhr (Atlantic's Offices) and Todd Weeks (Atlantic's Bluebird).
THE JAMMER began previews January 9 and will now play through Sunday, February 17, 2013 off-Broadway at Atlantic Stage 2 (330 16th Street, between 8th & 9th Avenue).
In this wild theatrical adventure about New York in the late 1950's, The Jammer plunges into the hard-boiled, bizarre world of professional roller derby. Jack Lovington (Darragh), a lovelorn Brooklynite, needs to find himself and stake a claim in the world. When he joins up with the rough and tumble Brooklyn Brown Devils, little does Jack know that his life is about to be turned completely upside down and that he's about to find himself on a most unexpected roller coaster ride. Jones takes us back to the Bushwick of yesteryear and creates a romantic urban fable for our time.
TICKETS: All tickets are $45.00 and available by calling Ticket Central at 212-279-4200 (www.ticketcentral.com) or at the Atlantic Stage 2 box office (330 West 16th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues).
