NOTE FOR NEW YORK CITY LTYM FRIENDS/FANS/AUDITIONERS: This year’s NYC event will be a LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now book launch in early April rather than a traditional LTYM show, meaning NYC will not hold auditions this year. New Yorkers can hop over to North Jersey or travel to Lehigh Valley (or other nearby cities) to audition and join us for the show!
