We’re thrilled to announce that Listen To Your Mother is returning to Boston for our 3rd annual show!

In 2016, men and women from all over New England will gather together in Boston to share the laughter, tears, and love that is Listen To Your Mother. As the show grows to 41 cities this year, including our first host city in Canada, Boston is thrilled to give motherhood a microphone once again.

There are a few changes in our leadership, next year’s show will be co-produced and -directed by 2014 and 2015 Director Jessica Woodbury (me!) and 2015 cast member Divya Kumar. We’re excited for a new team and for the amazing experience of building a new cast.

Divya’s work as a postpartum support professional and her time at home raising two children means she has a wealth of experience about being a mother and helping women find and share their truth. Her honesty and compassion are boundless. She’s going to be an invaluable asset to the team.

This will be my 4th year in the Listen To Your Mother family since I joined the Providence cast in 2013. I’ve seen my own life change as I’ve shared my stories, I’ve watched our casts find their voices, I’ve seen audiences laugh and cry. I’m so proud to be a part of this wonderful project.

Please stay tuned for our Save the Date when we announce the day and location of the show, and audition announcements will also be coming soon. Follow @ltymshow on Twitter for updates!

And if you’re near us, start thinking about the story of motherhood in your life that you want to share.

So without further ado, here’s the Boston 2015 playlist! Grab your beverage of choice, settle in, and prepare to be taken on a journey through the unique and the universal aspects of motherhood. Jessica, Phyllis and I couldn’t be more proud to share these stories with the world.

It’s A Wrap: Boston’s 2015 LTYM Show Recap

May 27, 2015

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 […]

ImprovBoston is back supporting LTYM Boston!

May 2, 2015

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 […]
