I earned my superhero cape when I became a mom. So did you. Anything that requires so little sleep and so much wiping of another’s stinky butt with a smile automatically drapes a gal in silky Super Girlness.
If Motherhood gives us the cape, Listen To Your Mother gives us the powers.
Bringing Listen To Your Mother to Pittsburgh allowed local men and women a minute behind the microphone to share their stories of motherhood. We knew from the electricity in the room, each time a new face stood before us sharing a part of her soul, that this was going to be something special. From three days of emotionally-charged auditions, to a grueling selection process, we cast our show and never looked back.
Our inaugural Listen To Your Mother Pittsburgh was performed before a sold-out audience, and was met with tears and cheers and everything in between. The talent on stage and the gratitude in the seats meant one thing: Pittsburgh was long overdue for this show.
And we’re back.
Year two of Listen To Your Mother Pittsburgh is HERE. Audition dates are set, performance day is scheduled, and now all we need is YOU.
Don’t say, “I can’t do that,” because you can. Don’t assume you’re “not a writer” just because your stories have been contained in your head. Don’t be afraid because there’s an amazing, supportive community waiting to hold your hand. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MOTHER. You don’t have to be a woman. Your story doesn’t even have to be about a human to share that universal mothering experience. This is proof. You just need your voice and an original piece about motherhood.
