Playwright and Tony Award-winning performer Sarah Jones shares her big idea through the voices of two unique creations, including a young African girl.
Sarah Jones is the Tony Award-winning playwright and performer of Bridge & Tunnel. She recently became an ambassador for UNICEF, performing for audiences in Indonesia, Ethiopia, the Middle East, and Japan.
A 2007 Brendan Gill Prize winner, she has also received commissions from Lincoln Center Theater and the Ford Foundation and awards including an NYCLU Calloway Award for being the first artist to sue the FCC for censorship. The lawsuit reversed an indecency ruling targeting her hip-hop poem recording, Your Revolution.
A regular guest on public radio, she has also appeared on Charlie Rose, the Today Show, Now, CBS Sunday Morning, and Sesame Street as "Ms. Noodle." She is developing a feature based on her characters for HBO films.
