Biography Print Bio

Sarah Jones is a Tony and Obie Award-winning playwright and performer, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and humanitarian activist. Called “a master of the genre” by The New York Times, Sarah is known for her multi-character, one-person shows – including Bridge & Tunnel, which was originally produced by Oscar winner Meryl Streep, and went on to become a critically acclaimed hit on Broadway. The daughter of two physicians and the product of a multi-racial family and community, Sarah was educated at Bryn Mawr College and the United Nations International School, honing her sense of empathy for people from all backgrounds and the diverse voices that characterize her work.

Sarah’s performances have included multiple shows at The White House at the invitation of President and First Lady Obama, three popular TEDtalks which have millions of views, and an historic performance at The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland where she was honored to be the first artist to perform on a stage normally reserved for Heads of State and captains of industry. Sarah’s new one-woman show, Sell/Buy/Date, had its world premiere at Manhattan Theatre Club this fall to critical claim.
