C- and Another Night of Solo Performancea.Muse welcomes NYC writer and comedian Eric Jaffe, and four other local Bay Area solo performers to a night of comedy and storytelling which promises to have a little something for everyone.
Hosted by Lori Shantzis, aka a.Muse
With: Cory Reddish, Elizabeth Sale, Ann Swanberg, & Terri Tate.
Mr. Jaffe will perform 2 characters from his solo show, "C-", which asks the question "What is the real value of a college education for students who spent four years tapping kegs instead of opening books?" Based on interviews with 65 of Eric Jaffe's hard-partying, now middle-aged fraternity brothers, "C-" is a humorous and poignant exploration of the gap between the world as it is often understood by college students and the reality of earning a living after graduation.
