About Sarah Jones
Tony Award-winning playwright and performer Sarah Jones slips in and out of characters in her solo performances — as many as 14 in her Broadway hit Bridge & Tunnel.
She has received commissions from Equality Now, the Kellogg Foundation and the National Immigration Forum to address issues of injustice and inequality. She is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and has given performances at the White House.
Jones is now at work on a new solo show, Sell/Buy/Date, as well as a television project based on her characters.
