Description


By popular demand Theater To Go brings ROEBLING:The Story of the Brooklyn Bridge to the Theater at the Valley of Central Jersey in Bordentown NJ in March 2020). Written by Mark Violi and Directed by Ruth Markoe, Roebling tells the story about how this important New Jersey family overcame seemingly insurmountable odds to build one of America’s most iconic structures, and how their innovative technology changed bridge building forever. The Brooklyn Bridge is part of our everyday world—seen in movies, in photos, or casually passed over on a taxi ride—yet many do not know the fascinating story of how it got there.

Roebling: The Story of the Brooklyn Bridge is the story of the immense challenges faced by the Roebling Family in their dedication to building the Brooklyn Bridge. Audiences will meet a remarkable, forward-thinking family on the cutting edge of the Industrial Revolution. Roebling shows how this project foreshadowed the 20th century in the huge ambition of the project itself, the revolutionary construction techniques developed by John Roebling, and in the recognition of the vital role that his daughter-in-law, Emily Roebling, played in the implementation of this enormous project. This is truly a story of Innovation, Dedication, Perseverance and Family.

We are also honored to have Clifford Zink, noted historian and author of The Roebing Legacy who will be joining us after the show to share a talk-back with the audience to discuss the play and the remarkable history of the Brooklyn bridge.
