There were so many submissions that very quickly on Thursday I called the Downtown Independent and asked if Expressing Motherhood could do another show with a whole different cast on November 4th. They said yes and so there will be two different Los Angeles casts of Expressing Motherhood this Fall.
There will be a show that takes place in September, with a two night run. Shows being Wednesday, September 23rd at 7:30PM and Sunday, September 27th at 6:30PM.
The second run, with a whole new cast, will be one night only in November. November 4th, a Wednesday.
Tickets for both shows will go on sale this week. They will go fast!
Thank you to all who submitted. LA you were on fire.
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.
We talked about being a step-mom, having her birth son at 40, being cast as the “utility mom” now at 50, how she meditates daily, her 11 year-old son is now acting and how she now teaches improv classes to kids. Listen along here. Please Follow(subscribe) to the podcast.
Submissions for the Fall Downtown LA show will be accepted June 23rd only. Please see Submissions for details.
I was fortunate enough to meet Jillian Lauren at Mom2Summit last month and chatted with her on the new Expressing Motherhood podcast. Please tune in around 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Had some technical difficulties but the interview was interesting. Jillian has a wonderful new memoir out, “Everything You Ever Wanted.” We talked about tantrums in public spaces, when and how often she writes, friendships and more. Listen here.
A big thank you to all who submitted for the Boston, San Francisco & Sioux Falls shows. We will get back to you within the next two weeks.
The September Los Angeles show will be accepting submission on June 23rd. Please check under Submissions for details on showtimes and rehearsals.
We have one more city to announce, Expressing Motherhood will be headed to Des Moines, Iowa in the Spring! Local Producer Ashlen Sheaffer will be heading up the show over there. Submissions for the Des Moines show will be accepted October 19th.
This is a video we shot back in 2009 when we were aiming to take ExMo to Des Moines in 2010. Thankfully we changed plans as I would have had to fly with a 6 week old colicky baby (no bleeping way.)
