Originally from Rochester, New York, Sarah Murphy is a recent transplant to the Washington DC area, where she has eagerly dived into the local theatre community. A graduate of The College at Brockport, Sarah holds a Master of Public Administration degree in nonprofit and arts management. Her particular passion is the role theatre can play in examining and addressing issues of social injustice.

Sarah is thrilled to be joining the BroadwayWorld DC team!
Solas Nua, the DC-based organization bringing Irish contemporary arts state-side, has gone back two hundred years to find inspiration for its upcoming production, The Frederick Douglass Project. Commissioned to commemorate Douglass' bicentennial, the production explores the abolitionist and human rights leader's 1845 visit to Ireland.
