LTYM 2015 – Our biggest season yet!

Listen to Your Mother 2015

It’s the sweetest time of the year — and I’m not talking about the early snow that’s welcoming Thanksgiving in Michigan.

Listen to Your Mother season started with a major announcement: the LTYM family has expanded by ten new cities this season! The ten new cities — including a show in Southwest Michigan! — join 29 returning cities to round out a 39-city season for Listen to Your Mother 2015. Learn more about the new cities at the main Listen to Your Mother page. (Sign up for the newsletter while you’re there, so you’re up-to-date on all of the Listen to Your Mother news from around the US.)

Metro Detroit is thrilled to welcome Listen to Your Mother back to The D for the second year.

LTYM: Metro Detroit 2014 was an amazing, transformative experience for the production team, and hopefully the utterly fabulous cast feels the same way.

We can’t wait to see what the second year brings. Stories seep from the fabric of Detroit and its Metro areas, and we are so fortunate to have the opportunity to bring some of those stories to the stage this Mother’s Day season.

Stay tuned for more information, like the official announcement for the date of the show, audition information, and more! Think about your stories about motherhood, your friends’ stories, and the stories of the people you bump into at the playground. We hope you take the leap and share your story with us; we can’t wait to hear it.

While you’re waiting, fall in love with Listen to Your Mother, whether you’re returning or just learning about this fabulous show for the first time.

Welcome to the LTYM Metro Detroit Show!

by angela on August 6, 2014

Motherhood ebbs and flows between moments. Some cripple with the enormity of their pain, while others deliver the heart-exploding joy that casts a glow over even the toughest days.

Of course, in between, there are the small moments that knit together the experience, putting together broken hearts and bringing smiles of remembrance and that ever-wonderful moment of “I know that feeling.”

We’d love for you to watch the LTYM Metro Detroit videos — whether you attended the show, missed the show, or have never heard of the show until this moment.

If possible, experience the Listen to Your Mother Metro Detroit show in its entirety, even if it’s playing in the background while you take a walk or paint your living room or rock your newest little one to sleep. There’s something a bit magical about hearing the stories all together, something a bit like the roller coaster of motherhood itself.

Check out our show — we hope you love it as much as we do!

Thank you, Metro Detroit!

May 6, 2014

Time slid by too quickly the day of Listen to Your Mother: Metro Detroit. I wanted to slow the second hand, just a little, too keep the roller coaster of emotions moving with less intensity. Big moments, the ones for which you plan and plan and plan, always speed by before you can inhale. The morning of the show, I took a second to breathe. I paused, though I was running late, and I let the months of planning wash over me. To our magnificent cast… You blew us away — the producers/directors, your fellow cast members, the audience — we are all walking around in a different place this week because of your stories. We all have stories, but we applaud your bravery in bringing your words and your hearts to our stage this weekend. You will inspire more people to do the same. More stories will be told because you were […]

Meet the cast – Kimberly Morand

May 1, 2014

Meet Kimberly Morad! 1) What is your favorite location in Michigan? I had never really travelled outside of the popular “Canadian shopping destinations” until I met my husband who is a half-breed (Canadian and American). His family owns a quaint cottage in northern Michigan and we spend a lot of summer weekends there. They have the best ice cream, cheap booze, and the most fabulous mullets you’ll ever see. Did I mention the beach? Absolutely peaceful and gorgeous. 2) Do you have a favorite book, author, or story? What is it? Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson Jenny, also known as The Bloggess in the blogging community, makes me laugh so hard that I will never need to go to the gym to work out my abs again. From her dysfunctional childhood to her personal battle with depression, she has inspired me to try to find the funny in life’s struggles and […]
