Fully Awake & Facing Seventy: Heaven Betta Bea Honky Tonk! is written and performed by highly acclaimed San Francisco artist, Rhodessa Jones, with musical direction and performance by jazz artist Idris Ackamoor. An evening cabaret with live music celebrating Jones officially joining the ranks of the “senior citizen”, Fully Awake confronts the issue of aging head-on with insight, progressive politics, sharp-edged humor and yoga!

This cabaret evening doubles as a treatise on the Baby Boomer Generation confronting their last years and addressing the issue of growing old with dignity and security. Fully Awake completes a trio of full-length solo autobiographical works of Ms. Jones’ almost half-century career as a professional artist and community activist.

Mature language.
