We’re back, Atlanta! 

Listen To Your Mother season is firing up. Plans are being made. Dates are being set. Balls are rolling.

Miranda and I are honored to be back directing this third, THIRD, season of the show. Our first two have been so full of talent, emotion, and awesomeness, it’s hard to believe we will find cast members to compete. BUT WE WILL!

Because you know what? There are enough stories about motherhood out there dying to be told, we could have a show once a month and still not scratch the surface!

Start writing those stories, Atlanta. Remember, motherhood is the theme!

We’ll be ready to hear them during auditions after the new year.

Until then, be sure to like Listen To Your Mother on Facebook and check out last year’s Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta show on YouTube.

You Listened, Atlanta!

June 7, 2015

On the evening of April 25, 2015, hundreds gathered to hear the 13 women of the Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta cast share their stories of motherhood at The Earl Smith Strand Theatre. Months ago, these women came together as strangers and left that evening as sisters. Friends. Family. They were added to the hundreds of other men and women in the LTYM Family, forever connected by their experience.   These stories were shared genuinely, written from the heart and from the depths of their souls. Women, standing behind a podium on a dark stage, changed lives and made the audience nod during their “Me, too” moments. They spoke of the darkness of motherhood, the beauty of motherhood, the unexpected blessings of motherhood, and the spirit of mothers. Thirteen women gave motherhood a microphone in Atlanta that night. And it was beautiful.   Thank you to Simon Salt Photography for the beautiful images. Ten percent of ticket sales […]

Meet The Cast: Kyle Young

April 3, 2015

We are thrilled to introduce you to our 2015 Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta cast. We have put together a wonderful group of women writers and storytellers for our show. Please make plans to join us on April 25 at 7pm at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta. ********************** In Kyle Young’s life, reinvention has been the theme. “I’ve always been an artist, a writer, and a successful entrepreneur, but how those combine is constantly evolving.” From an award-winning career in marketing, to becoming a mother after forty, she’s re-prioritized and reinvented as life changed. “It’s been a challenge as well as a gift.” Join Kyle as she blogs at Multi-Tasking Woman and on her studio site Kyle Young Artist. Tell us a little about yourself.  I’m an idea person! I keep a sketchpad at hand to make notes (and so I won’t forget them!) because you never know when your next idea […]
