Craig Jessup (Marin resident - San Rafael CA) has been playing theaters, cabarets and concert halls throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe for more than 25 years. Jessup teamed with Ruth Hastings and Barry Lloyd in 1977 to form Ruth Hastings & Co. The trio played nearly every cabaret in San Francisco including Le Domino, Chez Jacques, Gordon's, Fanny's, Trinity Place and the Plush Room, culminating in a sold-out concert at the Geary Theater which was recorded live. A highly successful run of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris at Chez Jacques resulted in an invitation to perform the acclaimed musical revue in Brussels, Belgium at the Belgian National Opera Company just after Brel's death. Mr. Jessup has appeared in numerous musical revues and with Artstreet Theatre, Rohnert Park's Pacific Alliance Theatre Company, Broadway by the Bay (San Mateo), California Conservatory Theatre, 42nd Street Moon, the Aurora Theatre Company and Marin's Alter Theater Ensemble.
