Rock of Ages
The theatrical General Management team at Jumpstart successfully transferred this hit musical comedy to one of the smallest Broadway theaters. Trimming costs, while maintaining the full creative spectacle of Rock of Ages, Jumpstart Entertainment carefully managed ticketing and audience trends to extend the run of the production by an astounding three years. Rock of Ages was also the first Broadway show to permit cocktail service during performances, adding to the unique experience for audience members and contributing to the success of the production.
The 39 Steps
Working with a team of international artists to recreate the original West End production, Jumpstart nurtured this award winning comedy throughout its entire North American run. Paying close attention to the specific demands of each venue and market, Jumpstart Entertainment crafted a business plan that allowed the show to successfully grow from an out-of-town tryout in Boston to one of the country's leading non-profit theaters and finally on to Broadway. Jumpstart also general managed the show's continued success Off-Broadway and on tour.
Jumpstart Entertainment has general managed some of the most renowned dramatic works of the last quarter century. Wit, which opened commercially in 1998, went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. That would make the second year in a row a Jumpstart play won this prestigious award, with How I learned to Drive winning the previous year. Other notable dramatic works general managed by Jumpstart include True West, Frozen and A View from the Bridge.
