On Sunday May 6 from 2-3:30pm – there is no where else you’d rather be than sitting in the audience of the Synetic Theater in Arlington – enjoying the fabulous debut of Listen To Your Mother DC. Trust moi!
So what is Listen To Your Mother?
It’s a live show featuring local authors. It was started 2 years ago by Ann Imig in Madison, WI and based on her success, she is debuting the show in 12 different cities nationwide. The show gives a microphone to Mothers Day. But it does more than that because it’s not just for mothers, it’s for parents, aunts, uncles, cousins – it’s for anyone who has loved a child.
I auditioned for the show in February and was so proud to be selected as one of the DC cast members. Last month, we all gathered together and heard each others pieces for the first and only time until May 6. I was blown away. I left that evening in awe of the talent in DC, the talent that you don’t hear or see in mainstream media every day but is still there. Each writer has a unique voice and a great story. Some will make you cry. A lot. I don’t even really love emotions and let me tell you, I couldn’t help myself. Some will make you laugh. A lot. Some will make you tear up and then laugh. It’s a great balance. It’s 90 minutes on a Sunday afternoon where you can just relax and let 1 local women entertain you – give yourself a break on Sunday afternoon – let yourself be entertained and enjoy yourself.
