As part of a follow up series with our Chicago cast here is a Q&A with recent Ohio performer and mom Amy Rowe. Amy discussed how though she was told she’d fall in love instantly with her newborn it, in reality, took longer then an instant.


Amy is second from the left in the red!

 What was it like participating in Expressing Motherhood? What surprised you about being in the show?

I am always amazed at the adrenaline rush that comes from being in front of an audience. Hearing their laughter is so affirming and encouraging.

 Had you ever performed before?

I was a member of the New York cast back in 2009. Other than that, I have been in a few church plays, performed a couple of solos (again, at church), and was a lily pad in a preschool play many moons ago.

What projects do you have on the immediate horizon?

As soon as I unbury myself from the projects I put on hold while in Chicago, I’m planning to work on the lyrics for a new song for Stacie and Shannon to perform. My working title? I’m glad you ask! It’s “Fuck you! No, I’m not pregnant.” It will be dedicated to the Lyft driver named Grace who so uncool-like noticed my gut and congratulated me on my mom-to-be status. (Bitch!)

Then, I hope to polish up a couple of pieces to submit to the Oh, Baby: True Stories About Tiny Humans  anthology you guys told us about.

Oh, and I also want to have a viewing party for the DVD when it comes out. Lots of my friends were bummed to not have been able to attend the show. It’s a good excuse to enjoy some wine with my fellow moms, right?

Thanks again for the great opportunity, ladies! Hope to see you at another show sometime soon!!!
