What could be better than seeing amazing people read their original words on stage? Watching those words read from your living room. And you can, because the 2016 LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: Charleston videos have been released!

LTYM-Recap-7

These videos feel a little like coming home. You know you’ll find something familiar, something comfortable, something that pulls at your heartstrings in the best possible way. And Charleston is just one of 41 cities across North America. There are over 500 stories to listen, learn from, grow with. There’s motherhood to embrace in these stories–varied, hard, blissful, beautiful, and brutal.

The whole Charleston show can be seen right here. Or here is the breakdown by reader.

I promise that Charleston is a good place to start your Listen To Your Mother journey, but keep watching. There are stories of love and loss. This movement is all inclusive and welcoming. So no matter what your Motherhood Story is, you’ll find something to relate to. Look to the LTYM Playlists for Stories about Race, or Stories from LGBTQ Families.

Thank you so much to the businesses and organizations that make Listen To Your Mother a reality: our National Media Sponsor BlogHer, and locally Gala Desserts,  Lowcountry LiveLowcountry Coffee Roasters, A Cut Above the Rest, and Stella Nova.

Happy watching!

Thank You Charleston!

May 16, 2016

Listen to Your Mother makes the most amazing kind of magic. It grows when like-minded people share the same space and breathe the same air. It grows when an audience says “Yes. I feel that way too,” or “I understand you,” or “I thought I was the only one.” That’s special magic, and we grew it in Sottile on May 1. The magic grew and unfolded. It took control and while you couldn’t see it, you sure could feel the energy and power and strength. All those wonderful feelings were there, alive and amazing. The cast of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: Charleston took the stage at Sottile, and the audience heard the most breath-catching stories. There were words of heartbreak and love. Stories that were funny, and stories that made us all feel like we’d found our people. I’ve been floating one something of a dream since the show, a little tender as I […]

Welcome to Sottile Theatre

April 18, 2016

There are few theater spaces in Charleston that are more beautiful than Sottile Theatre. Now part of the College of Charleston, Sottile started off as the Gloria Theatre was built by Albert Sottile in the 1920s. Originally, the space showed movies and vaudville-style shows to theater goers on King Street downtown. It was revered and admired as a premier movie house. When the movie Gone With the Wind debuted in South Carolina, the cast showed up at the the Gloria to celebrate the film. Sottile Theatre was donated to the College of Charleston in the 1970s, and restoration began in the 80s. But in true Charleston style, many of the historic details were maintained–including the blue sky dome over the audience and the ornamental ironwork, making Sottile a revered and beautiful space in the heart of Downtown Charleston.   We are excited to bring LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER: Charleston to the Sottile Stage on May […]
