The show was taken 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, Tacoma, Dubuque and Portland. The show also has a Podcast, is on Spotify & has been watched at homes across the country via DVDs and live-streamed shows.
Watch An Entire ExMoShow
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 turns 10 in January 2018!
To date, over 10,000 seats have been filled to see the show, almost 300 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.
Lindsay Kavet: Co-Creator/Director/Producer
Lindsay Kavet has been joyously directing her 4th baby, Expressing Motherhood, for 10 years now.
Lindsay has three kids and created the show as a means to be creative and also meet fellow creative moms.
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 the complex, creative, maddening city she calls home.
Her short film “Meg” was chosen to be a part of the LA Short Film Festival.
She loves Expressing Motherhood and thinks it’s kept her sane despite tendencies for people in her family to lose their sanity.
Jessica Cribbs: Co-Creator
Jessica is a former producer and now she writes for BurbankMom a hyper-local blog that focuses on all things Burbank.
