LTYM 2014 Raises Over $26,000 for Local Causes!!

May 22, 2014

A vital component to Listen To Your Mother’s mission is our support of women and families in need. Each local team selects a non-profit to partner with during the season, building awareness for the cause to both our real life and online audiences, and donating a portion of our ticket proceeds as well as fund-raising for that cause day of show. LTYM is elated that our 32 shows raised over $26,000 this season, that will go directly to our local causes in 2014:   In addition to funds raised, many cities include cause representatives as part of their show–with some cities bringing cause reps with them for media opportunities, and others offering causes a call to action from the podium.   LTYM, as a project, has now raised over $50,000 to date, for causes that support women and families.Thank you for helping LTYM 2014 Give Motherhood a Microphone, and so much more.

LTYM Thanks Chevrolet for Supporting The Arts and Helping Creative Women #FindNewRoads

May 15, 2014

From our “Road Trip” Pinterest Board As we bid our 2014 live-show season farewell, and anticipate reliving it all again this summer with the video release on our LTYMShow YouTube channel, LTYM extends an enormous thank you and standing ovation to our National Sponsor, Chevrolet. In a long-standing tradition of corporations underwriting the arts in America, Listen To Your Mother relies on national sponsors to help sustain LTYM shows in current cities, and bring LTYM to the dozens of new cities clamoring to host shows in the future. Thank you, Chevrolet, for helping women (and men!) #FindNewRoads with LTYM personally–with writing, performing, and forging new friendships–and professionally, enabling women to embrace new roles as local directors and producers. Even more? Thanks to Chevrolet, Our Chicago and NYC local Director/Producers got the opportunity to road trip in style–borrowing a brand new Chevy Impala, Tahoe, and Volt to see our sister shows in Milwaukee, North […]

LTYM Weekend #2 Is A Hit!

May 7, 2014

Last weekend, ten more Listen To Your Mother shows graced stages across the country.  BRAVO to Charleston, Chicago, DC, Kansas City, Metro Detroit, NYC, Oklahoma City, Plumas County, San Francisco, and Southeast Texas! So… if you’re not a mom and you’re side-eyeing all this “mom” stuff, we wanted to share the reactions from some non-mom friends of NYC cast member Laura Clark: “It was great! I mean, I would come again next year even if you weren’t in it!” “I LOVED coming. I did so out of loyalty to you, but enjoyed myself so much that I plan to do it annually. The stories were all so different and all so good.” And from a male friend (not prone to displays of emotion!) : “I was expecting just some anecdotal tales of motherhood that I wouldn’t relate to. But I really enjoyed it and was moved in unexpected ways. Very impressive. Thanks for letting us know about that.” Listen To Your Mother is for everyone! Even you. Especially […]
