We’ve been very patient here in NYC… extremely patient.

While it’s been fun watching our LTYM sister cities announce their audition, casting, and sponsor news these past few weeks, here in NYC, we’ve been biding our time, and biting our tongues until this moment – when we could officially share the details of our special LTYM NYC 2015 BOOK LAUNCH, celebrating the publication of Listen To Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now.

Here’s what you need to know…

DATE: Wednesday, April 8

TIME: 7:00 PM

PLACE: Book Court located at 163 Court Street, Brooklyn, New York


And the really exciting part is that you’re invited.

It’s going to be glorious. We’re slated to have several LTYM performers on hand to read their essays from the book. The book’s editor and LTYM Founder, Ann Imig, will also be speaking, reading, and mingling among us. Plus, it’s going to be a great way to meet LTYM cast members from around the country.

The NYC team is especially proud that many of our NYC alum and friends are included the book, such as…

Patty Chang Anker (2012)

Kathy Curto (2012)

Marinka (2013)

Edward McCann (2014 auditioner)

Barb Patrick (2013)

Amy Wilson (2012)

Yet what makes this motherhood anthology incredibly special and heartfelt to us is this – on a national level and, quite possibly with the book’s release, on an international level, our collective voices are being heard like never before. Our reach has never been greater to give motherhood a microphone and promote the causes we care deeply about, raising thousands of dollars in support of women and children. It is a wonderful accomplishment to be a part of, and all of us who believe in LTYM can take pride in that.

So if you can make it, we’d love to have you to join us to help celebrate this irreverent, hilarious, and edgy collection of motherhood stories in style. And, help continue the advancement of the Listen To Your Mother movement.

We just might have some additional tidbits to share about the LTYM NYC 2015 BOOK LAUNCH so please sign up for our email newsletter and follow the LTYM Twitter and Facebook. Here’s a great idea – Pre-order the book and pick it up at the party!

What’s in store for LTYM NYC 2015? 

2015 is the year that the book, Listen To Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now comes out. We couldn’t be more excited about this and we encourage you to check out the list of contributors (including NYC director, Amy Wilson, plus Patty Chang Anker, Kathy Curto, Marinka, Edward McCann, Barbara Patrick and many other LTYM alum and friends).

In light of this momentous event we’ve decided to change things up in NYC this year. Rather than having a traditional LTYM show we will concentrate on an event in early April to celebrate the publication date of Listen To Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We’re Saying Now. We don’t know yet exactly what this event will look like or even when it will be but as soon as we know, you will know!


Itching to share that motherhood story only you can tell?
The LTYM NYC show will be back in all its glory in 2016, in the meantime several cities close by are holding auditions soon. Please consider auditioning for the 2015 show in one of those cities

Stay tuned about our special LTYM NYC 2015 BOOK LAUNCH!
Please sign up for our email newsletter and follow the LTYM Twitter and Facebook accounts for updates on our special event. You can get ready by pre-ordering the book now and don’t forget one for your mother!

Listen To Your Mother NYC #3 A Success!

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 […]
