THE JAMMER will begin previews Wednesday, January 9; officially open Tuesday, January 22; and play a limited engagement through Sunday, February 10, 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.
Atlantic Theater Company's world premiere production of Melissa James Gibson's play What Rhymes with America, directed by Daniel Aukin and starring Chris Bauer, Aimee Carrero, Seana Kofoed and Da'Vine Joy Randolph, is in previews and will open December 12 at The Linda Gross Theater.
