Jones will chat about her award-winning one-woman show Bridge & Tunnel, which plays its final performance at the Helen Hayes Theatre Aug. 6. The two-hour program will also feature segments about singer Corinne Bailey Rae, songwriter John Hiatt, director Norman Jewison, the Juilliard School, the piano-playing Five Browns and college professor and poet Kewulay Kamara.
After an acclaimed run at Off-Broadway's 45 Bleecker Street Theatre, Sarah Jones' Bridge & Tunnel reopened at Broadway's Helen Hayes Theatre. Jones tackles over a dozen characters in the solo show, which explores issues of assimilation in modern urban America, putting the New York melting pot to the test. Jones was awarded a 2006 Special Tony Award for her performance.
