Do you have a funny, poignant story about the journey of motherhood? Now's your chance to get on stage and share it. Expressing Motherhood Is Headed To The Midwest For A Chicago Show!
Submissions will open in the next few weeks and all the details are here: Chicago Submission and Show Information.
Expressing Motherhood has been running since 2008 and has sold out in Los Angeles, New York and Boston. This show highlights the poignant, dramatic, inspirational and often times hilarious moments in motherhood as told by the mothers themselves. Each show hosts a new cast and the Chicago show will be no different. Expressing Motherhood just closed its Mother’s Day show at The Lillian Theatre in Los Angeles. The cast performed to sold out shows and received standing ovations almost every night.
Opening Night, May 10th, was an amazing event with goodies given to the audience from Bellies, Babies & Bosoms, Sara Horne Jewelry, Type A and more! The Mother’s Day show on May 12th was catered by Daphne’s California Greek in West Hollywood and featured our first ever Q&A with the cast immediately following the show.
“Performing in Expressing Motherhood was one of the most fulfilling things I’ve done since having children.... gave me a sense of normalcy.”
–Kendra Pinkleman, Toledo Ohio, Cast Member 2009
“I wound up in a controlled sob midway through...(it had) everything to do with how the disconnect between what we expected from motherhood and what came to be can sometimes make us do really pathetic things!”
-Madeline Holler, Babble.com
A portion of the proceeds is donated to Family Care International, a non-profit dedicated to helping the maternal health of women world wide. Expressing Motherhood is a show conceived by two moms during their children’s nap times.
