One of the most wonderful parts of being in the cast of Listen to your Mother is the way the joy washes over you in waves.
There’s elation over being cast in the show, validation when you read your words on the stage, gratitude for the true connections you make with your cast mates that last long after the curtain closes and then there’s the awe you feel when the videos are released and you see what you and so many other men and women across the country gifted to others with your words.
Today, our cast will experience that joy. They stood and read to their local audience. They had their “me too moments” when members of the audience thanked them for speaking the words that they couldn’t.
They felt strong and proud and accomplished when they went to bed after the show.
But now, the size of their audience explodes and their words will travel across the country and the world.
They will finally be able to share their courage with friends and family who couldn’t make it to the show.
And they will be forever changed.
You can find the Listen to your Mother, Sacramento 2014 videos here and once you’ve spent some time savoring the words of our cast, please check out the amazing videos from the other cities. You’ll be richer for having experienced it!
