EMILY ROEBLING: The Woman Who Saved the Brooklyn Bridge Premieres
Featuring live-action performances and a multimedia experience, EMILY ROEBLING: The Woman Who Saved the Brooklyn Bridge, premiered Saturday, March 29, 2014 at the Theater at the New Jersey State Museum, West State Street, Trenton, NJ.
Presented in association with the New Jersey State Museum and produced by Theater To Go, this version of the full-length drama ROEBLING: The Story of The Brooklyn Bridge is focused on Emily Roebling and her remarkable contribution to the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge. Combining live narration, scenes from the larger production, and a compelling multimedia experience, an enthusiastic audience was treated to an entertaining and educational Saturday afternoon in the final weekend of Women’s History Month.
We feel great having given Emily’s story greater exposure and weaving it into the even larger story of the Brooklyn Bridge. A theme of the production is that Emily has been largely forgotten by history; we hope to keep her name and memory alive.
This show is designed to travel and would be great for audiences of all kinds. Emily’s story is relevant to us all but especially to the areas Women’s History, New York & New Jersey History, Engineering, Industry and most any aspect of the Humanities. Schools, museums, charities and organizations of all kinds can enjoy a great show experience. It is perfect for anyone studying STEM+A (STEAM).
Anyone interested in a production for their audience, should contact Ruth Markoe at Theater To Go.
