U.S. to get Royal National Theater show

LONDON, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Tom Stoppard's "Jumpers" will be the first of Britain's Royal National Theater production transferred to Broadway, according to one of the producers involved.

American producer Bob Boyett, who with Onstar Productions signed the three-year, $1.35 million deal with RNT last fall, said Tuesday that besides "Jumpers," Eugene O'Neill's "Mourning Becomes Electra" might also arrive on Broadway this spring.

Another show that originated at the RNT and has been a smash success in London's West End, "Jerry Springer: The Opera," is expected to transfer to Broadway in the spring of 2005.

Boyett said he also wants to bring "The Pillowman," a new drama by Martin McDonagh, to New York later this year. Another possible trans-Atlantic transfer is Michael Frayn's latest play, "Democracy," a RNT-produced hit.
