Tom Stoppard's "Jumpers", transfers to the Piccadilly Theatre from 14 Nov 03

It has been confirmed that the National Theatre production of Tom Stoppard's Jumpers will transfer to the Piccadilly Theatre opening 20 Nov 03, following previews from 14 Nov 03, and booking to 6 Mar 04

Tickets are now on sale!!

Simon Russell Beale and Essie Davis are expected to transfer with the show.

Jumpers opened at the National Theatre in June 03 to terrific notices from the popular press: ROBERT HANKS for THE INDEPENDENT says, "It is still a marvellous display of Stoppard's verbal ingenuity, with some beautifully contrived cross-purposes and neat gags." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "One emerges having had a good time." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Beale triumphantly proves Jumpers worth reviving." NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Leveaux's spectacular production artfully unites Stoppard's contrary elements into a witty, though verbosely over-extended whole."

The play is directed by David Leveaux , designed by Vicki Mortimer, with lighting by Paule Constable.

Mental gymnastics, a pyramid of acrobats and a specially trained tortoise… Tom Stoppard's play about a moral philosopher, his musical-comedy-star wife, a moon landing and a body in the ballroom.

Looking for the best seats...
