Critics’ Reviews

'The Jammer' is a ripsnorting, bodily-fluids-drenched, retro riot.

Review by David Cote from Time Out New York

Under Jackson Gay’s astute direction, Rolin Jones’ play, led by a revelatory performance from Patch Darragh, tugs at the heartstrings and resonates with the emotional dreamer in all of us. ‘The Jammer’ isn’t groundbreaking, but it does what theater does best: It appeals to the audience’s emotional sensibility and delivers a beautiful story in a beautiful way.

Review by Suzy Evans from Backstage

Equally irresistible is director Jackson Gay’s clever staging. It blends spry actors and cheesy cardboard cutouts in down-and-dirty derby sequences. That’s the moral: Jam a show with imagination and you don’t need pricey effects.

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from The New York Daily News

‘The Jammer,’ a new play by Rolin Jones is a wonderful, energetic and authentic-feeling recreation of those matches. It's an homage to 1950s roller derby and the pugnacious athletes who competed, fought, loved and lost.
