Get Your Stories Ready, Atlanta!

by jana on December 16, 2014

You watched from the sidelines last year, not sure you were up to auditioning for Listen To Your Mother.

You’ve heard about it for years and imagined yourself taking part in it — standing on stage with your family and friends in the audience, sharing stories of motherhood from your heart — but just couldn’t bring yourself to do it.

Maybe you came to the show and vowed that you were going to do this in 2015.

Now’s your chance.

We are so thrilled to be bringing back Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta for the 2015 season. Right now we’re working on firming up a date and venue and all the other details that go along with creating such an amazing show!

But we can’t have a show without stories. And you.

We want it all. Young or old. Male or female. Mom or non-mom. Happy or not-so-happy. Any aspect of motherhood is fair game. If you need inspiration, take a look at past LTYM videos.

Here’s where we ask you to write. You may already have a piece you want to audition with, or maybe you just need to be inspired. You may need a big giant kick in the booty.

Get busy. Write out your thoughts and stay tuned for the official call for auditions!


Be sure to like Listen To Your Mother on Facebook and check out last year’s Listen To Your Mother: Atlanta show on YouTube. But fair warning–grab some tissues first.

Atlanta is Kicking Off the 2015 LTYM Season!

by jana on November 21, 2014

After a spectacular inaugural Listen To Your Mother show in Atlanta last year, we are thrilled to announce that we will again “give motherhood a microphone” in 2015!

Last year we were honored to have 12 outstanding cast members read alongside us (Miranda Wicker and Jana Anthoine) at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta. Our readers celebrated lives lost, lessons taught, special moments, and very personal secrets.

If you missed the show, you can watch it in its entirety here.

LTYM Cast Shot


The 2015 Listen To Your Mother Show is set to be the biggest and most awesome ever! 

A show that started with one show in Madison, Wisconsin in 2010 will now feature shows in 39 cities across the country. Seriously. I said THIRTY-NINE. It’s more than a show now. It’s a movement.

Want to get excited? Take a few minutes to watch the introduction video and see if your city will be hosting a show this year.

Announcements about our Causes, Auditions, Dates and Cast will happen over the next few weeks and months.

Stay tuned, Atlanta! And don’t forget to Listen To Your Mother!

Comfort Zone, Schmomfort Zone

April 13, 2014

Lyssa Sahadevan, one of our Atlanta cast members, has stepped out of her comfort zone. We’re honored to have her voice in our show. Her story is one you’ll want to hear. ***************** I like my comfort zone. I always have. My happy little comfort zone includes all things education. I write about it. I read about it. I talk about it. I blog about it. I present about it. It’s my thing and I love it. So what in the world made me step, no leap out of my comfort zone and audition for a show? My sister. Months ago, maybe longer, my friend Christi had shared about her fab experience with a show called Listen To Your Mother. Then, like a sign from the web Gods, I saw that the show was heading to Atlanta for the first time. I read through the information, shared with my friend Shelly, and decided […]
