It seems that going to Chicago has become an annual affair. This time around I got to see Sarah Jones perform for the Chicago Humanities Festival. Even with severe jet-lag I was locked in to her performance. She is a human chameleon. Each character appears like a rabbit out of a hat. The transformation is seamless. The lady never drops the ball once.
Sarah Jones is a Tony Award® winning playwright and performer. Her multi-character, one-person show Bridge & Tunnel was originally produced by Meryl Streep and became a critically acclaimed, long-running hit on Broadway. A UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador performing internationally as a spokesperson on Violence Against Children, she was also invited by First Lady Michelle Obama to perform at The White House in celebration of Women’s History Month. Jones is currently at work on a commission for Lincoln Center Theater and a television project based on her characters.
