That’s A Wrap

Expressing Motherhood just wrapped its two weekend run in Silver Lake. A huge thank you to all of the performers and all of the audience members.

I have been producing this show for 7 years now.

As I drove home on Saturday night I was filled with a calm happiness that I knew would be brief but utterly connected me to all that brings me joy.

Backstage is a show in itself.

A bonding similar to summer camp happens only much quicker and without the ugliness. There is lots of drinking; water, tea, coffee, wine, bourbon. Lots of stifled laughing and shushing from me.

There are moments I can’t share but really are a story all unto themselves.

Then there are the brave performers who sit under the blue light going over their words. Most of them coming off a regular day, watching kids or working.

Then transforming themselves in the dressing room and braving the audience night after night.

Every night in theatre is different.

As Loretta Fox whispered to me “It’s live theatre!” As I tried to fix something happening backstage, we both shrugged and smiled.

It’s live and lively and makes me feel totally alive.

I’m not sure when I will put on the next one but please like the ExMo Facebook page to know when submissions will be held.

I’ll upload the pieces that the performers have OK’d for video soon. Lori already uploaded her’s here.
