Nashville LTYM is back for 2016!

by brigid on November 3, 2015

Listen To Your Mother is a force to be reckoned with, once again! LTYM will bring a voice to 41 cities nationally – with 31 returning cities, and 10 new cities. That is some fabulous stuff, right there.

Our Nashville team has a new look. Brigid Day will be returning on the production team, but will be joined this year by three new production team members, all Nashville LTYM alumnae. Please welcome Marcela Gomez and Jo Dee Prichard from the 2014 cast and Christy James from the 2015 cast to the Nashville team.

Anne McGraw and Carrie Weir brought their talents, work, and love to Nashville for two years and our show would not be where it is without them. You can look for them at our show, because we expect they will be sitting in the front row!

Speaking of our show, save the date: April 30th, 2016.

Check out the National LTYM site.

It was like a dream

May 11, 2015

Our show was a little over a week ago…and it’s taken this long to try and figure out how to put it all into words! The cast brought their A-game. It was actually jaw-dropping to see it all happen in person, because even the rehearsals didn’t adequately prepare us for just how incredible these stories would be up on that TPAC stage in front of an incredibly engaged audience. The most common responses from the audience afterwards? “We wanted more!” and “I didn’t want it to end!” Thank to everyone who has been a part of the 2015 Listen To Your Mother journey here in Nashville. We hope you’ll come back again next year….and maybe you have a story to tell yourself? Write it down and consider auditioning. There’s power in reading your words aloud in front of an audience. Just ask this crew. They were brilliant, and it was a powerful experience. […]
