Sarah Jones: One Woman, Many People
The shape-shifting, mind-boggling Sarah Jones reprises her enormously popular one-woman Festival performance with a program that showcases embodiment and impersonation. The New York Times heralded Jones’s show Bridge & Tunnel as a “sweet-spirited valentine to New York City, its polyglot citizens and the larger notion of an all-inclusive America, that ideal place where concepts like liberty, equality, and opportunity have concrete meaning and are not just boilerplate phrases slapped around in stump speeches and news conferences.” You won’t quite believe you’re in the room with just one performer after glimpsing the raft of characters Jones brings to life.
