I’ve only recorded one episode so far and I need some help but the premise is I’ll be having past performers call in and share their stories about motherhood that they’ve shared with the show. I’ll also talk to them about being creative and what kind of underwear they are wearing.

I was just checking to see if you were still reading.

Bare with me as I figure out what I’m doing but go take a listen while you are folding laundry.

I am currently in the process of talking to locals from their cities to bring the #ExMoShow to their town.

Expressing Motherhood did this back in 2010 when my generous sister-in-law Sabrina Kavet brought it to Boston. I kept having so many babies I needed to keep the show at a certain level for awhile but now I’m not having any more babies and my youngest is almost 4.

So bring on more cities!

If you are interested in Producing Expressing Motherhood in your town and Directing it please email me. lindsay(at)expressing motherhood.com. I will guide you.

Expressing Motherhood’s 8th Season

This is Expressing Motherhood’ 8th season.

Our first program. I used a photo I had taken of my belly while 9 months pregnant during the hottest summer on record in Los Angeles, with a 60 pound weight gain to boot.

In looking back over some photos during the first show back in June 2008 it’s clear to see that, we’ve aged.

Kidding aside, it’s also clear to see that we’ve been busy.

I only had one child when the show debuted. Jessica had two already. Our good friend Polly died the month before we debuted ExMo and the show could not have been a bigger gift as I threw myself into, literally as a means to channel my grief.

Jessica actually had to miss our first show as she contacted Meningitis! We kept thinking I had caused her to have a mental break down. Fortunately that was not the case.

Jessica being the superwoman she is made our programs from her hospital bed.

Rebecca Woolf was an original cast member.
Terry! The first person ever cast in the show. I was scouting for a theatre and Terry was so effusive about my idea he said I have to be in it. I agreed, you do and so he was. I called up Jess and said, “I’ve cast our first person and he’s a man.”

As we say though, the show must go on.

Within a year it was selling out and we took it, both pregnant this time to NYC turning our idea over the phone into a national play that was actually connecting with people.
