jumpers: Opening Night Photo Coverage

Tom Stoppard's revival of jumpers (starring Simon Russell Beale and Essie Davis) opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on April 25th, 2004 and was there to catch the parade of celebrities walking down the red carpet.

Tom Stoppard's play is an outrageous comedy, dazzling philosophic debate and crackling murder mystery, all at once. The elements include an ill-fated moon landing, a naked lady on a swing, a dead body in the closet, a pyramid of acrobats, an onstage band and a trained tortoise on the loose.

Simon Russel Beale and Essie Davis head the cast of the National Theatre of Great Britain's production of Jumpers. David Leveaux directs.
