On June 29 and July 6, audiences are welcomed to participate in talkbacks with actors from the cast following the evening's performance.

Jumpers was ferried from London's National Theatre by producers Boyett Ostar Productions and the Nederlander Organization. The production will have played 112 performances and 23 previews. Though a brief run, it exceeds that of the original Broadway mounting, which lasted 48 performances and 3 previews.

The show earned four Tony nominations, including nods for stars Simon Russell Beale and Essie Davis, and director David Leveaux. The show itself was nominated for Best Revival of a Play. It took home no awards.

The philosophical circus, which opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre April 25, is Tom Stoppard's absurdist treatise of the nature of human morality in modern society.
