Expressing Motherhood’s Opening Weekend Re-Cap

What a fun weekend. Yes, it was a hot LA weekend but if you made it to our show then you know you had the hottest ticket in town.

Dressed up in our Unique Vintage dresses!

Friday opened our show up with a bang. Jessica and myself dawned our gorgeous dresses from Unique Vintage. We had our hair and makeup done and had some photos taken in front of our new Marquee. I must say I felt like a lucky woman. Playing dress up with my friend on the streets of LA, my 6 year-old self was beaming.

Laughing nervously as Friday traffic rolled slowly by. Have to love LA where people don’t even blink an eye when you look like this.

Ladies Night Out Burbank was a lot of fun. The street was packed with people and food trucks.

Bad Ass Burgers

The ladies performed to a sold out audience.

On Saturday a couple was eating at Urban Eats, directly across the theatre, and they said

“Everyone in the restaurant was coming to see this show, so we thought we would miss out if we didn’t come see it too.”

My amazing mother in law flew in from Boston to help run the ticketing booth.

All of the brave local LA moms shared their stories on stage.

By Sunday night we were easily collapsing into laughter as it was a “bit” warm backstage, 100 in the Valley baby. The cast had fallen into a rhythm.

We look forward to one more weekend. As one cast member said as she left last night, “I’m sad only one more weekend and a regular work week.” I know I said. The show runs are short, all the moms are far too busy to keep this pace up, but it sure is a wonderful point of creative refuge.

Hope to see you at the theatre. A big thank you to all of our sponsors this weekend. Love Nana Jams, Unique Vintage, Baby DeeDee, The Rose Run and Gutzy Gear.
