Why See Bridge & Tunnel?
Ten characters explore issues of assimilation in modern urban America, putting the New York melting pot to the test.
Bridge & Tunnel is the story of the American Dream as seen through the personas of fourteen characters, each with a distinct voice. A charismatic male Pakistani accountant, a Chinese mother adjusting to her daughter's alternative lifestyle, and a young Latina with a quick wit and an even faster tongue are but a few of Jones's gallery of characters. This chorus of voices emanates from the reaches of New York's boroughs with origins far beyond the city's limits.
When reviewing the successful off-Broadway incaration of the show, Broadway.com critic William Stevenson said: "In her bracingly funny new solo show, Sarah Jones is a one-woman melting pot. With dazzling virtuosity, she vividly brings to life 14 characters of various ethnicities in a brisk 90 minutes. Although Jones isn't completely unknown (her fans include Meryl Streep, who is 'presenting' this production with the Culture Project), Bridge & Tunnel announces her as a major theatrical talent."
