The flexible Jump! cast

Jump! is a riveting, action-packed show that elicits simultaneous gasps and guffaws, fusing martial arts, gymnastics, mime, elements of skateboarding, and dance into an unforgettable visual treat. A combination of slapstick comedy and action best described as “Jackie Chan meets Charlie Chaplin,” the show is set in a traditional Korean home.

Jump! will make you gasp

With a plot emphasizing family and romance, this Korean stage family is one you’ll long cherish. The stern, wizened grandfather is as funny as he is strict, and his beautiful young daughter is both agile and charming. Martial arts showdowns and inept robbers are part of the colorful story, and kids will love the flipping, butt-kicking, flirting and gymnastic fireworks. Though the entire cast is so superb that it’s impossible to pick a favorite, Han-Chang Lim as an uncle is mesmerizing, and Woon-Yong Lee as an Old Man is hilarious. If you live in New York City and have children, this is a must-see event. Even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took their worldly brood to see this lively show.

Order your tickets at The Union Square Theater, 100 E. 17th Street at Union Square East, or through Ticketmaster.com or 212-307-4100. For more information about Jump!, visit www.jumpnewyorkcity.com.
