Oh Boy Episode 50: Sarah Jones, Part 1
A very special guest to celebrate our 50th episode!
Hey everyone guess what! The promo said it all, but this is Oh Boy’s 50th episode!
Oh yes. To celebrate, we not only have a special guest, but a special two-part episode, with the first half right in front of you and the second coming next week.
About that guest! Her name is Sarah Jones and she is a Tony and Obie Award-winning playwright and performer, known for her one-woman shows wherein she embodies multiple characters of varied backgrounds (the first of which, Bridge & Tunnel, was produced off-Broadway by Meryl Streep). The New York Times called her a “master of the genre,” but raise your hand if you were sold by the capital M in Meryl. I’ll wait.
Prepare yourself for an Oh Boy experience unlike any other. Multiple characters make an appearance, many from her most recent show, Sell/Buy/Date. Each has a personality so clear that it will be hard for you, the listener, to decipher whether a new guest has walked in the room or if it’s yet another of Sarah Jones’s creations. As far as Sarah Jones is concerned, the answer is both; these characters exist inside of her.
Ready for this one? Headphones in, enjoy.
