Join Us at The Old South Church, Copley Square on 5/9/15!

Click here for LTYM: Boston submission info.

I have not been able to sleep since December 29, 2014. Cheryl, Jessica, and I met that evening and talked about this day when we would be open for submissions. The excitement has gotten the better of me and I’ve been dreaming of the stories that YOU will be telling us during auditions. We cannot wait to gather your stories and put it together for our show on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at the Old South Church.

Before I write some more details, watch this video that was lovingly created by Cheryl:

2015 is YOUR year to tell your story about all things motherhood.

Here are some suggestions for your story submission:

  • Your story should be 3-5 minutes long. Write your piece, read it aloud, time yourself, and edit if necessary.
  • Your story’s theme is motherhood and needs to center around that. You don’t have to be a mother to write about motherhood. Think about what’s universal and unique on the theme of motherhood. Run with it – we can’t wait to hear it!
  • Your story must be original. It must be YOU. It’s YOUR story that we want to hear.
  • Watch and listen to some of the past stories from the Listen To Your Mother YouTube Channel. They are ALL amazing. If you are looking for Boston’s inaugural cast, you can go here.
  • When submitting your story, please attach the written piece as a WORD document AND paste it in the body of the email. All submissions should be emailed to listentoyourmotherboston@gmail.com. In the subject line of the email, please include “2015 LTYM Boston Submission” along with the title of your piece and your name.
  • Once you have submitted your story via email, please sign up for an audition slot here. The audition dates will be Feb. 7 & 8 and Feb. 21 & 22. The location is TBD.

We will have two mandatory rehearsal dates on Saturday, March 21 and Saturday, April 11th from 9 am to 12 pm. Please make sure you can be in Boston on those dates.  

We’re waiting to hear from you!!!

We’re baaaaaaack!

by Phyllis on November 6, 2014

Hey, hey, hey, Boston! We’re baaaaack! Listen To Your Mother returns again to Beantown for another amazing year! In addition to the 29 returning cities, we have 10 new cities joining us! (Including my hometown of Seattle – woo hoo!)

We cannot even begin to tell you how excited we all are – especially, Jessica, Cheryl, and I! We’re doubly excited to be back at the Old South Church again. It was an amazing and historical site for last year’s inaugural show, so we are over the moon to share the stories of the 2015 season with Boston at the Old South Church once again.

The Listen To Your Mother Show has been such a life changing experience for me every year, including the addition of new and wonderful friends that started out as a group of strangers. We have become each others’ greatest supporters, cheerleaders, shoulders to cry on, and more. I am better because of each of these cast members.

Here is some more inspiration from the Listen To Your Mother Show 2015 Season Announcement video:

Wow, right? We want YOUR voice for the 2015 season! So, get your stories ready and be prepared to change the world on May 9, 2015 in Boston!

By the way, check out the Listen To Your Mother Show’s National site for an EPIC announcement and find out where you can pre-order!

If You’ve Ever

April 10, 2014

If you’ve ever learned something from a child, Ever stood in admiration of a mother’s many roles, Ever found solace from loss in the everyday, Ever answered, “was I wanted?” Ever been blown away by a child’s loyalty, you can’t miss it. If you’ve ever told little and not so little lies, Ever cried because you lived to see a day, Ever tamed a sexual revolution, Ever sacrificed being a daughter to be a mother, Ever wanted to change the world, you should be there. If you’ve ever seen your mother in yourself, Ever found closure in difficult circumstances, Ever let life’s path unfold in unexpected directions, Ever let your heart expand, Ever found the community you didn’t know you’d need, you should come. You’ll find yourself at Listen To Your Mother. Come to Boston and have a “me too” moment with our cast. Buy your tickets now. by
