In a little over one week, a group of Chicago-area women will be taking the stage to share true tales of motherhood. I am so honored and excited to be a cast member of the 2013 Listen to Your Mother show on May 5th at the The Athenaeum Theatre (2936 N. Southport Avenue, Chicago) and hope everyone considers going!
As someone who has been known to experience paralyzing stage fright, my plan is to down one hearty shot before going on. Mum's the word. I think the producers are already second-guessing my casting and questionable influence on the far-classier members of the troupe.
The voices and backgrounds of the selected artists are as wildly diverse as the topics. I am dying to give you a sneak peek into these fantastic readings, but the producers remain keenly aware of my deficiencies in the area of secret-keeping. They have also issued a confidentiality agreement and are holding me to that most sacred of promises...
No matter. I will take this risk for you, loyal reader, and confirm that the show is an emotional journey spanning tears and laughter, life and loss, and that one little word that looms so large throughout all the days of our lives:
So think about grabbing a mother you know and heading over May 5th! Tickets can be bought by visiting HERE.
As an aside, I am dedicating my reading to all those who have lost their moms far too soon and who would give anything to "listen to their mother" just one more time.
I hope to see a few friendly faces there!
And please pray that I don't suck.
