I Can Hear You But I'm Not Listening, a night of comedy with Jennifer Jasper
I Can Hear You But I'm Not Listening, conceived and performed by Jennifer Jasper
What audience members are saying:
"What a sparkling gem of an evening! What strikes me is the honesty, the movement, the transition-on-a-dime."
"About a quarter way into the show I was convinced we may have been separated at birth. And by intermission I had fallen in love."
"I laughed so hard at one point I almost wet myself hilarious, authentic and poignant."
Theatre Off Jackson presents a night of twisted and hilarious personal storytelling from Jennifer Jasper in I Can Hear You ... But I'm Not Listening. Unscripted and improvised, Jasper explores her experiences as the middle daughter in a family of five girls with colorful (and off-color) stories. From her early efforts at speech therapy to her Laura Ingalls Wilder obsession to her discovery of her grandfather's "interesting" hobby, Jasper's expert comic skills and her gift for wringing laughs from the dark and uncomfortable moments of growing up make each performance unique and revealing.
Jennifer Jasper has been a fixture of the Northwest theater scene for more than two decades, known for acting, directing, and emceeing. She co-founded Kings' Elephant Theatre (original long form improvisational pieces and scripted plays) and Vixen Productions (Pulp Vixens, A Fistful of Lesbians). Known for her character work, she is a frequent hostess and emcee as the scotch-swilling, hard-living "Maggie." Jennifer's autobiographical show Middle was featured at the Seattle Solo Performance Festival at Theatre Off Jackson in 2010. Her most recent directing endeavors include Sgt. Rigsby and His Amazing Silhouettes in Shadow Odyssey and Teensploitation by Scot Augustson, and Keefee's House of Cards, written by Stephen Hando, who played the leading role.
