Listen To Your Mother NYC #3 A Success!

by elizabeth on May 5, 2014


More than once last night I met audience members who stopped me specifically to say, “This was wonderful! I’m going to come again every year!” Not that they want to come or plan to come but a declaration that they would, for sure, be with us in the future.

That is exactly what we like to hear. Listen To Your Mother is more than a show, it’s a movement. In year three here in NYC we are gaining the kind of momentum that makes us feel wildly optimistic about our future. We hope that everyone who connected with our show will be back next year in the audience, on our website, and in the audition room!

In addition to the roller coaster ride of stories we were able to donate $1,000 to our partner cause, WPA. It has been a great pleasure to learn more about their programs and to be able to help them a little along the way.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who brought the show to fruition!

He has worked with Disney Television and HBO films. He’s currently working on a screenplay. Follow him at @neilochka. What is the natural talent you’d like to be gifted with? Confidence in decision-making.

Or maybe not. What is your favorite food and drink? You can tell a lot about a person from the answer to this question.My favorite food and drink is buttered toast and coffee.
