Karen Stephens In Sarah Jones' BRIDGE AND TUNNEL At The Boca Raton Theatre Guild
The Boca Raton Theatre Guild will start its season off with star power: Karen Stephens will reprise her award-winning (Best Actress 2011 - New Times Best of Award) performance in Sarah Jones' Tony Award winning Broadway show Bridge and Tunnel.From September 9-11th, at the Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park, Stephens will once again inhabit the souls of 14 unique and diverse members of New York City's melting pot: A Polish-German-Lithuanian-American Jewish grandmother, a boyfriend-hating Australian, a Chinese mother of a lesbian daughter, a Jordanian woman with a fixation on the Beatles, and 10 other inimitable individuals provide their own distinctive, entertaining, and often moving perspectives on the American dream. Hosted by the charming and hilarious "Muhammad Ali" in a night club in Queens NY, these fascinating characters from the outer boroughs of New York - bridge and tunnelers - will offer their perceptions of the immigrant experience. Bridge and Tunnel was originally produced Off-Broadway by Oscar-winner Meryl Streep, and went on to become a critically acclaimed, long running hit on Broadway. It was performed in both Sarasota and Ft. Lauderdale as part of the Women's Theatre Project. Bridge and Tunnel will be directed by TWTP's Genie Croft.Playwright Sarah Jones is the winner of the 2007 Brendan Gill Prize.
