That’s a Wrap Baltimore!

May 26, 2016

Our 2016 Listen To Your Mother Baltimore show wrapped on Saturday, April 23, 2016 and I still don’t have the words to express exactly what that means.  I’ve been stalling on writing this wrap-up post because it meant that I would actually have to acknowledge that this season is over.  **insert sad face**   Arlene and I believe in this project with all heart and soul. In 2014 for our inaugural season, we were terrified that no-one would audition.  They did!  We were nervous that no-one would attend. We almost sold old!  Oh those stories!!  The cast from 2014 will always be our first “babies”.  Then for 2015, we prayed that we wouldn’t have the “sophomore jinx”.  Kind of like a one hit wonder?  We weren’t! 2015 was another great show and we popped our collars a little at being able to match 2014.     A third year though? Could we do it […]

Baltimore!!!  There are only 11 days until our show on April 23 and we are EXCITED!!!!!!!  Each week we’ll be giving a little sneak peek at our cast members.  Today we are featuring Michelle B, Samantha and Lisa Introducing Michelle C. Bond LTYM: How did you hear about the Listen To Your Mother show? Listen to Your Mother popped up in my inbox earlier this year.  I’m not really connected in the blogosphere, but think I must have been on your mailing list from purchasing tickets in 2013. At that time, my dear friend Shannon Brown was in the cast and sharing the story of her little star with strength and love. Shannon and I were in the in the Peace Corps together in South Africa. In fact, the first day we met in staging in DC, we were assigned as roommates and actually ended sharing a bed due to a room mix […]

I first heard of the show through my work with House of Ruth Maryland. The House of Ruth Maryland was the charity organization that the show proceeds were gifted to during the 2014 season. LTYM: As a blogger, what’s your favorite piece that you’ve written?  This is super nerdy, but I’m really proud of my first published research article where I was first author (meaning I bottomlined the writing and stats in the article, but got assistance and support from others). It’s about how childhood abuse is a risk factor for experiencing later intimate partner violence, with the aim […]

Introducing Michelle A. Dowell-Vest LTYM: How did you hear about the Listen To Your Mother show? I first heard out LTYM on social media, but at BlogHer 2015, I met Ann Imig and interviewed her for a podcast I was taping that weekend. I also met Taya that same weekend. At the time, I was writing a chapter for an anthology called The Strength of My Soul. I wrote a story about myself and my mother which seemed as if it would fit perfectly with LTYM. I promised to audition and here I am. LTYM: What does motherhood mean to you? Motherhood is a stewardship. I never believed l had ownership over my children. […]
