May's bucket benefits Jena Cane.
Jennifer Jasper, in association with JewelBox Theater, presents a monthly cabaret all about family. Family Affair, hosted and curated by Jennifer Jasper. Storytellers, dancers, writers, musicians and artists share their hilarious, twisted and ultimately relatable familial skeletons on the third Wednesday of each month. As needed, each performance benefits a family in the artist community who has had an unforeseen crisis. The evening closes with a new story randomly drawn from Jennifer's kooky family album of Jasper Jewels.
Family Affair will take place every 3rd Wednesday at 7:30pm, starting May 21, 2014, at Rendezvous/JewelBox Theater at 2322 2nd Ave, Seattle, WA 98121. Tickets are $10 cash at the door. Audience members must be 21 or over. No pre-sales are available.
