Meet the cast!

Cast Spotlight on Danielle Zack

May 2, 2017

Our cast members are complex, intelligent, and witty people. You simply have to hear them to believe us. We asked 4 questions to give you a feel for the innermost workings of their minds, and the variety of answers has been one of the highlights of this year’s process. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! ~~~ 1. If you could meet any person in history (living or dead, real or fictional) who would it be and why? If I could meet anyone in history I would love to meet Eleanor Roosevelt. She was a leader and champion for women and humanity. I would love to be in the presence of her grace and strength. It would be incredible to catch even an ounce of her brilliance. 2. Have you ever been on stage before? How do you feel about going on stage for the LTYM show, knowing you’re also […]

Local Sponsor Northwestern Medicine Dispels A Common Myth

May 1, 2017

If you’re a woman who hasn’t generally needed medical treatment, you might think that Listen To Your Mother Chicago’s returning megaphone sponsor, Women’s Health Services at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, is mainly for those who need obstetrics and gynecological care. You would be wrong! Women’s Health Services runs the gamut of ALL women’s health needs, including Integrated Pelvic Health. Maggie Mueller, MD wrote an article in February that dispels a myth about a common condition that women think they just have to “live with”. Take it away, Dr. Mueller! With new year’s resolution floundering by the dreary month of February, it’s easy to lose sight of the important things, like taking care of yourself. Many women make new year’s resolutions to lose weight. And how do women plan to tackle this feat? Tried and true methods like healthy eating and exercise. While there are many benefits to a healthy approach to weight loss, one […]

Cast Spotlight on Steven Krage

April 27, 2017

Our cast members are complex, intelligent, and witty people. You simply have to hear them to believe us. We asked 4 questions to give you a feel for the innermost workings of their minds, and the variety of answers has been one of the highlights of this year’s process. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! ~~~   1. If you could meet any person in history (living or dead, real or fictional) who would it be and why? My answer to this question changes from day to day, but I’d have to say that meeting Groucho Marx would be a particular thrill for me. This was a man who shaped modern humor and is seen even now as an icon. The questions I could ask him would be myriad and his responses would leave me with sore abdomen muscles and a perpetual smile on my face! 2. Have you […]

Cast Spotlight on Lea Grover

Our cast members are complex, intelligent, and witty people. You simply have to hear them to believe us. We asked 4 questions to give you a feel for the innermost workings of their minds, and the variety of answers has been one of the highlights of this year’s process. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! ~~~   1. If you could meet any person in history (living or dead, real or fictional) who would it be and why? JK Rowling. She seems like a remarkable person, and I would love to pick her brain about writing, publishing, and life in general. In fact, if JK Rowling would just be my life coach, I’d be pretty happy with that. 2. Have you ever been on stage before? How do you feel about going on stage for the LTYM show, knowing you’re also reading your own words? Yes! I majored in […]
