Full casting has been announced for the Atlantic Theater Company's New York premiere of Rolin Jones’ The Jammer, a play about professional roller derbies in 1950s Brooklyn. The play's ensemble cast includes Patch Darragh as Jack Lovington, Dan Domingues as Father Domingo, Christopher Jackson as Charlie Heartbreak and Billy Eugene Jones as Lenny Ringle. The Jammer begins previews January 9, 2013, with an official opening set for January 22. The show will play a limited engagement through February 10 at off-Broadway's Atlantic Stage 2.
Directed by Jason Gay, The Jammer tells the tale of Jack Lovington (Darragh), a lovelorn Brooklynite, who needs to find himself and stake a claim in the world.
