This show is produced in conjunction with the Federation of Asian Storytellers (FEAST) and showcases Feast Fest performers. World traveler and award-winning storyteller Jeff Gere curated these stories based on strict, top-secret criteria and the result is a show rich in international, traditional tales told from around the globe. Jeff will give his commentary on each story and explain why it is one of "Jeff's Picks." Click here to learn more about FEAST

Jeff's Picks is streamed on YouTube and the ticketing link allows for viewing anytime through July 31st. There are several ticket levels and your generosity will help support FEAST and its efforts to create more opportunities for tellers to perform, internationally and inter-culturally, by organizing festivals, performances, and teller exchanges and collaborations.

Tickets range from $8.00 to $50.00 (or more if you are feeling generous!).
