Expressing Motherhood is the hit, ongoing stage show that has been showcasing people sharing their stories about motherhood onstage since 2008.
#ExMoShow was created in Los Angeles by Lindsay Kavet and Jessica Cribbs, two SAHM, in 2008.
We took the show to New York City in 2009, just one year after its conception, and it performed to sold out audiences off-off Broadway.
Since NYC, Expressing Motherhood has gone to cities all over the nation such as Boston, Chicago, Sioux Falls, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Louisville and Portland. The show is also on Spotify & has been watched at homes across the country via DVDs and live-streamed shows.

The show was built for the non-famous, non-published, and people dying to get out and express themselves. The first person cast was a gay father. The average cast consists of ten people, and for each show the cast changes. People submit their stories and performers are chosen based on the power of their stories.
The show is going into its 11th season in 2017. To date, over 8,000 seats have been filled to see the show, 200 people have performed in it, and countless spirits filled because of it.
Expressing Motherhood was where LA moms Shannon Noel and Stacie Burrows met, fell into creative love and formed their national sensation, Mommy Tonk.

She was born in Los Angeles and was moved around the country with her family(corporate brat) spending most of her years in South Dakota and Iowa. She is now back in Los Angeles raising her kids in this complex, creative, maddening city she calls home.
