The beautiful Old South Church in Copley Square was home to the second year of Listen To Your Mother in Boston.

The day of the show always goes by in a slightly surreal blur. There were those of us in a serene calm and some of us in a jittery nervous excitement. But we were all there because we had stories to tell, voices to be heard, and motherhood to be celebrated.

Each year, I am humbled and honored for the stories that our cast members share. They are real, honest, tear jerking, hilarious, and heartfelt – all at the same time. Everyone has a story to tell, but not everyone gets up in front of hundreds of people to tell them. This summer, the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel will host their stories – adding even more incredible-ness to the current stories there.

We were also thankful for the alums of LTYM who came to support our cast! Thank you for being a sponsor, for volunteering, for cheering so loudly, and standing beside us for this year’s journey. Thank you, also, to our biggest cheerleaders and rockstar volunteers Kimberly & Heather, & 2014 Boston alum, Joanna. You guys were the glue that held us together for show day.

Our show could not have happened without the generosity of our local sponsors. They are amazing local businesses that make Boston such a unique and exciting place to be. Make sure to check them out! All their links are on our sidebar to the right of this post.

In addition to our local sponsors, we were thrilled to have Elisa Camahort-Page attend our shows to represent our national media sponsor, BlogHer/SheKnows Media. If you will be around in NYC, register and come to #BlogHer15: Experts Among Us where LTYM will host Open Mic Night again.

Finally, thank you to our families. Without your support, the three of us could not have put together this amazing show.

We want to thank everyone who came out to give motherhood a microphone this year! The show could not have happened without this amazing, fun, and beautiful cast!

We are super thrilled to have ImprovBoston back for the second year supporting the production of Listen To Your Mother Boston 2015! Our friends there have donated their space (and had to get up extra early!) to host some of our auditions and our show rehearsals. Doesn’t our cast look great on their stage?

I’ve had the opportunity to attend two of their Saturday evening “Family Shows” in the last year, and they’re a great way to introduce kids to what improv is all about. My 6yo son loved their on-the-spot alien creations. I loved a sketch when two famous celebrities were chosen by the audience while cast members were out of the room, and then those cast members had to figure out their identities while on a supposedly romantic date. The improvised “Beyonce” I saw definitely got fiercer as her dinner progressed. ;)

I definitely recommend you check out ImprovBoston’s website for more details on their upcoming shows and even summer camps. We greatly appreciate their support in making LTYM happen again for Boston!
