Aaaaand We’re Back!

by Melisa on November 13, 2014

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or one of them, anyway; it’s LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER season! Last week, Ann made the announcement that for 2015, we’ve got twenty-nine returning cities and ten new cities, which makes this the biggest season ever. *tossing confetti*

Click this picture to watch the moving 2015 season announcement video. You might need tissues, by the way. It’s really good.


Here in Chicago, Tracey and I are starting behind-the-scenes preparations for our fourth show.


How is that even possible??

More than forty women (and man!) have told their stories to a live audience as a part of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER Chicago. Who’s next? You? Or you? Or her? Or him? Or them? We won’t know for a while but if you or someone you know might be interested in sharing your story about some aspect of motherhood, it’s time to get writing! We’ll have information about how you can audition for our show after the holidays.

In the meantime, follow LTYM on Twitter and Facebook, and keep an eye on this page too, while you’re at it!

They’re here! They’re here!

Living in the era of the internet has opened up new doors for entertainment. Our show would have been a one-day opportunity to witness in the pre-internet days of the not-so-distant-past. Instead, thanks to YouTube and the internet, you are ALL able to sit back and enjoy the Chicago Listen To Your Mother show of 2014 from the comfort of your home, or office, or even in the airport lounge.

We are SO excited to announce that the 2014 show is on YouTube!

Click here to find the Chicago 2014 Playlist.

Sit back and enjoy the carefully selected pieces of this year’s show, in the order they were on stage, or feel free to jump about and watch your favorites over and over again! Once you’ve finished with the Chicago line-up, grab a REALLY big drink and settle in for the long haul of enjoying the hundreds of new videos from the 31 other cities that also hosted a LTYM show in 2014!

We want to say thank you once more to our local sponsors for making the Chicago show possible and to the national sponsors for making ALL of this possible! Please check out their sites, especially the national video sponsor, . If you purchase their booklet for $5 now, all of the proceeds go towards their charity, Junior Achievement USA.

Thank You For A Wonderful 2014 Season!

May 14, 2014

Each year, we compare the process of producing LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER CHICAGO to that of raising a child, don’t we? Our first “baby” was so exciting and confusing and unexpected with all of the new experiences and trials. Our second “baby” was also exciting but for different reasons: we KNEW what to expect and couldn’t wait to experience those First Steps with another cast! Last year definitely felt like a second child; we were less fearful and still wondering how any other show could be as wonderful as our first show was. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that we loved (adored) our second cast and show just as much as our first. This year, on our third “baby,” we were full of confidence that we could handle whatever this show had to throw at us. Minor issues and inconveniences will ALWAYS occur when a live-stage show is being produced. It […]
