Pasqual’s is a Madison tradition. I grew up eating Paqual’s for family dinners out,  and I bring my own family there for the delicious family-friendly food, easy going vibe, and killer margaritas. Several of my neighborhood friends worked at Pasqual’s in high school and college. One of those kids –my friend Ben Roberts– now owns it! Pasqual’s loyal support of Listen To Your Mother: Madison has becoming another winning Madison tradition, and one we honor with our annual LTYM Madison alumni reunion.

What’s better than Pasqual’s margaritas with friends? Only Pasqual’s margaritas plus a brand new menu!!

Pasqual’s new menu honors their traditional fare with tried and true favorites, and expands on it. My mouth is watering at their new street food selections.

Listen To Your Mother local sponsor Melissa Austin Photography documents not only our Madison shows, but she’s also captured many of my family’s most important personal milestones–from professional head-shots, to portraits, to family parties and events.

In addition to working full-time and raising her own three kids, she’s a community builder who gives her very precious free time to support causes and events she believes in. Case in point, she serves as a local sponsor for LTYM: Madison giving up her own Mother’s Day to shoot our show. I know.

Her work speaks for itself; exquisitely and organically capturing moments and preserving them into memories…

Madison’s First Rehearsal

April 12, 2017

The tissue box was passed around the table Sunday April 2nd. Madison’s table read was full of laughter, tears and supportive hugs, surrounded by the beautiful furniture of The Century House. This is going to be an unforgettable show you don’t want to miss! Madison’s first table read is always a highlight of the Listen to Your Mother season.   The new cast arrived nervous and unsure how their piece fits into LTYM quilt. They gathered around to take in the nostalgia of the 2017 Grand Finale Season Video. It was wonderful to watch the magic of Listen to Your Mother work as we all heard the stories read together for the first time. The support and connections built around stories of motherhood at that table is at the heart of LTYM. We are reminded how deeply can we can share commonalities with someone we’ve never met yet and instantly understand them throughs […]

Listen To Your Mother Madison 2017 Supports Kajsiab House Women’s Group

April 8, 2017

LTYM’s mission includes supporting parents and communities in both creative and tangible ways. The benefits of LTYM reach beyond the audience and cast, with a portion of the proceeds from all LTYM productions going to local community charitable causes supporting mothers and families. In Hmong, Kajsiab (Ga shee’ ah) means the relief of stress and tension from worrying about the safety of loved ones.
