JewelBox Theater Presents FAMILY AFFAIR, 8/20
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.
Join us along with the 2014 Jackstraw Writer's in Residency participants: Laurel Albina, Claudia Castro Luna, Loreen Lilyn Lee, John Mullen, Gigi Rosenberg
