According to the producers, a healthy theatre season is to blame. "Due to an unprecedented number of shows playing on and Off-Broadway this season, Jump was not able to establish a strong enough presence to drive substantial ticket sales," a statement reads. "Jump will focus on its international productions…"
Currently, there are productions running in Seoul, Jeju Island, and there is an international tour scheduled for 2011-12 which will travel to Singapore, Japan and Colombia.
Presented by Show & Arts USA, LLC. and seen by over three million people worldwide, "this gravity-defying, internationally acclaimed show combines comedy, martial arts, acrobatics and butt-kicking, live-action shenanigans. It's the story of one, very unusual family and all the mishaps and misadventures that ensue."
Jump plays New World Stages (340 West 50th Street). Remaining performances are Friday and Saturday at 8 PM, Sunday at 7 PM with matinees Saturday at 2 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
Tickets are $48-$65. Tickets are available through Telecharge.com, (212) 239-6200. Visit jumptheshownyc.com.
