About the play:
An important New Jersey family had the vision, passion and fortitude to build one of America’s most iconic structures.
Roebling: The Story of the Brooklyn Bridge is the story of the immense challenges faced by the Roebling Family in their dedication to building the Brooklyn Bridge. Audiences will meet a remarkable, forward-thinking family on the cutting edge of the Industrial Revolution. Roebling shows how this project foreshadowed the 20th century in the huge ambition of the project itself, the revolutionary construction techniques developed by John Roebling, and in the recognition of the vital role that his daughter-in-law, Emily Roebling, played in the implementation of this enormous project. This is truly a story of Innovation, Dedication, Perseverance and Family.
