During the week of Mother’s Day I was honored to be a part of Austin’s Listen To Your Mother show. I had no idea when I submitted my essay that what I was really auditioning for was a part in a nationwide cast, women mostly but not all. I had no idea when I went to the performance that I would make connections with the other cast members that would make me feel like I was admitted into a very unique and amazing club. The rehearsals were a blast. The virtual connections are deep. And the show itself was positively thrilling. And I don’t use that word lightly!
And now all the performances, from all 24 cities, are on YouTube for your viewing, listening pleasure. Of course I’d like you to start with mine, that’s just how my ego rolls, but there are about 300 other videos too, to watch and listen to. So I highly encourage you to carve out some time, grab some tissues and a cup of tea, or a glass of wine, and enjoy some heart-wrenching, side-splitting, tear-jerking stories about motherhood.
