Celebrating Our 6th Season

Expressing Motherhood is entering our 6th season.

Thank you very much to all of you who have submitted, been in our show, helped at the shows and attended our shows. To our family members who work the box office, husbands that bartend, neighbors who design, mother in laws who know every name of every performer and grandmas and nannies that watch the kids while we are at the show, thank you.

I hope to celebrate many more seasons with you.

A Review by a Hesitant Audience Member

Well, after another day spent running around after my 3 kids has passed and I just came down and plopped into my office chair.

I went over a little bit of paperwork from the previous weekend and paid my nanny for a lot of help the past week while I was “working” on the show.

Is it worth it? I thought for a second. All of the money I had to heap at the nanny so I can fulfill this creative bug that drives me and has since I was a little girl organizing neighborhood productions.

I felt guilty.

Then I happened upon a review. A review from my favorite type of audience member, the one who has come, let’s just say, with very low expectations.

The review made me smile on many levels. In particular I love the part about how she’s impressed Jessica and I have been doing this longer then some bands have been together.

Also, the “The comradery of motherhood. The comradery of women,” that she began to feel.

Yes, the extra money I shelve out for some help with the kids while I’m off having a blast at the theatre is of course, worth it, very, very worth it.
