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 will be headed to two NEW cities this Fall
San Francisco and Sioux Falls (South Dakota) that is.
I will be headed up to San Francisco for the October 15th show at the beautiful Brava theatre. Rehearsals for that show will be October 14th from 10-2:30 and showtime will be Thursday the 15th at 7:30PM.
Submissions will be accepted June 1st.
Email all submissions and questions to email@example.com
I’m happy that my old friend Megan Pederson will be producing and co-directing the Sioux Falls show! I have known Megan since I was 12 and she was 11. We went to college together at the University of Iowa and have remained friends much to my delight.
Show dates will be posted soon for the Sioux Falls show.
Submissions for the Sioux Falls show will be accepted June 1st. Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
To ask Megan questions about the Sioux Falls shows please email her at email@example.com

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.
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.
I adore being a part of the show and look forward to announcing two new cities where it will be headed this Fall.
