An Evening with Playwright and Actress Sarah Jones

Pauline Ling; Norraida; Praveen Maanvi; Lorraine Levine; Rashid...  Sarah Jones

On November 17th, The California Endowment’s CenterScene Public Programs invites you into the lives of otherwise anonymous personas we share freeways, sidewalks and waiting rooms with via an exclusive show by Tony-award-winning actress Sarah Jones.

Through years of uncanny analysis of the dialect, body-language, and cultural style of individuals from various socioeconomic backgrounds, Jones will amplify the voices of those she’s encountered in her personal journey to reveal both shared and distinct experiences of health across neighborhoods in California.

Join us for an unforgettable evening exploring community health through personal narrative in a way you’ve never seen it done before.

Bio

Sarah Jones is a Tony and Obie Award-winning playwright and performer who has been dubbed a “one woman global village” for her ability to embody diversity in her performances. In 2004, her multi-character, one-person show Bridge & Tunnel, originally produced by Meryl Streep, quickly became a critically acclaimed hit off-Broadway, leading to a 2006 premiere on Broadway.

An outspoken social activist, Sarah is the first artist in history to sue the FCC for censorship and win, and has been an international Spokesperson on Violence Against Children as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Fans of Sarah’s work range from First Lady Michelle Obama, who invited Sarah to perform at The White House, to the Sesame Street audience that knows Sarah as “Ms. Noodle” from Elmo’s World. Sarah is currently working on a commissioned piece by the Lincoln Center.
