The First Rehearsal

I walked into the nondescript room which nonetheless felt filled to the brim with anticipation and promise.  Excited, yes, but nervous too.  Seventeen chairs in a U-shaped configuration. Seventeen women. Seventeen stories to be told.  And mine would be one of them.  Was I brave enough? Strong enough?  Oh gosh, would I be loud enough?

And then the stories started.  Vibes robust enough that they could almost be seen and touched filled every corner. Trust. Energy. Acceptance. Compassion. Understanding. Empathy. And laughter.  Lots and lots of laughter.  This was going to be okay.  In fact, it was going to be more than okay.  This experience was going to change me; I knew I would never be quite the same again.

 The concept of motherhood in nuances aplenty was given 17 voices at this first rehearsal of Listen to Your Mother 2013. Each voice was as unique as it was powerful.

This show is going to touch, entertain, challenge, and enlighten people. We may never see things quite the same way again.  The stories are silly and poignant and awe inspiring and heart wrenching and hilarious and soul touching.  Yep, all in one show.  It just doesn’t get any better than that! Buy your tickets and prepare to experience a very special prelude a week before Mother’s Day.  Please click here for the first step in the start of an amazing, and yes, I am sure of it, a life-changing experience.
