Sarah Jones, Tony Award-Winning Writer-Actor-Producer, Signs With UTA

Exclusive: Tony Award-winning playwright, actor and producer Sarah Jones has signed with UTA for worldwide representation in all areas.

Jones, who won a Special Tony Award in 2006 for her one-woman Broadway show Bridge & Tunnel (co-produced by Meryl Streep), currently is developing her most recent stage production, 2016’s acclaimed Sell/Buy/Date, into a documentary. She’ll be making her directorial debut with the film.

Sell/Buy/Date, a New York Times critics’ pick in its Off Broadway debut, was inspired by the real-life experiences of people affected by the sex industry, and explores the intersection of race, feminism, power, and economics. Streep, Rashida Jones and Laverne Cox will serve as executive producers on the documentary project. Jones is also producing alongside Julie Parker Benello and David Goldblum.

Jones recently launched Foment Productions, an entertainment company focused on social justice. The Sell/Buy/Date documentary will be the company’s first production.
