That’s a Wrap for LTYM DC 2016…

May 11, 2016

It’s never easy to describe a Listen to Your Mother show… It’s so much more than a performance. It’s an experience, and truly, words could never do it justice. So much easier to share a piece of that experience through pictures! It started with an empty stage… …and the cast’s pre-show excitement and anticipation… …and the audience’s pre-show excitement and anticipation! Speaking of those pre-show hours…2015 cast member, Ashley Fuchs made sure this year’s cast looked particularly gorgeous on stage. HUGE thanks to Ashley for offering to help us all with professional stage makeup! We should also take a minute to thank sponsor, Liz Smith – Stella & Dot Independent Stylist. Liz offered her styling services to the cast, and let us raid her jewelry box (more like many, many boxes…) for some special show bling!

A Final Thank You to Our Sponsors AND a Peek at the DC Show!

May 9, 2016

Every year, we brag about how the Listen to Your Mother DC show was so incredibly fantastic. And this year was no exception. “Phenomenal” doesn’t even begin to describe what took place on stage… There were stories unlike anything we’ve ever featured before. There was a line out the door for onsite ticket sales. (Perhaps the result of baseball and soccer games being rained out? We’ll take it!) There has been no end to the continuing e-mails and Facebook messages about how people were entertained and moved and amused and inspired to look at the stranger beside them and think, “I wonder what your story is.” If you weren’t able to be there, here’s a quick glimpse… All of the images above were taken by our fabulous show photographer, Julie Lowery of Julie Lowery Photography. We can’t thank her enough for volunteering her time and talent as our official show photographer! More eye candy to come… We’d also like […]
