New Dates & Venues for Fall LA Shows

Please note that both of the Fall shows have changed venues and dates.

The former September show will now be held on October 3rd & 4th @ 7:30PM in Silver Lake at Spirit Studio Silverlake.

The former November 4th show in DTLA will now be on Saturday November 7th @7:30PM in Silver Lake at Spirit Studio Silverlake.

If you have purchased tickets for the September show please call Brown Paper Tickets 1-800-838-3006 and cancel your ticket. If you have any problems please email me. lindsay(at)expressing motherhood.com

This lovely, warm space is more intimate so I’m guessing we are going to sell out quickly. I will let you know when tickets become available.

This is not ideal but if you have ever watched “Bullets Over Broadway” or worked in theatre as you know the show must go on despite, well it’s theatre darling.

ExMoShow Podcast: New Episode, Janet Baruch

In the latest Expressing Motherhood podcast episode I interviewed Janet Baruch.

She is a landscape designer based out of Richmond, Virginia. After going through a divorce, years ago now, she went and earned her certificate to become a landscape designer and started her own successful business, Greenway Gardens.

Janet has two girls in their 20’s and 3 stepsons in their late 20’s and early 30’s and is happily re-married.

She’s also my Aunt and one of my favorite people!

We covered how she built her business, at first working for free. How she tells people right up front how much she charges and sends over a contract before beginning work and she admits she needs to do more with social media. She does have an Instagram account but tends to post a lot of photos of her dog.

Her dog Oliver and flowers!

We had a great conversation and it’s quite informative, if you listen to it and have the time please leave a review on iTunes and subscribe to the show. In this day and age toughness seems to be defined by tattoos and hair dye, though my aunt only sports blonde hair and no tattoos she is tough, smart and cool while also offering some Southern charm.

Enjoy!

New Podcast Episode With Megan Dolan

In this episode Expressing Motherhood speaks to Long Beach mom/writer/actress Megan Dolon.

u_30165_i_1854124

I recently watched Megan in her one-woman show, “Snack.” She performed it as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

It can’t get any more real than this. Megan Dolan is a powerhouse storyteller, a veritable “Desperate Housewife” coming to terms with own fears and anxieties in the most practical and careful ways, through vivid, lively writing that strikes a beautiful, emotional balance between past and present. Highly Recommended. —Tracey Paleo (Gia on the Move)

Sunday, July 12th at The Asylum Lab you can grab her show one more time as it has been extended.

We talked about how she would write for 10 minutes each night after her two young kids went to bed and that’s how she wrote her show. We covered a lot more and you can listen to the episode here. It’s also on iTunes. Please subscribe! You can also listen to it by clicking below.

Submissions and a New Podcast Episode: Loretta Fox

Thank you to all who submitted for the September Expressing Motherhood show in Los Angeles. The cast will be announced soon.

I felt pretty raw after going through the submissions yesterday. I went and sat in my messy playroom and was just comforted by my kids’ toys and wished I could cast a spell to keep them this age forever. Your stories broke and re-shaped my heart, as they always do.

I just interviewed LA mom and actress Loretta Fox.
