This year, LTYM took place in 41 cities, giving voice to hundreds of stories of motherhood and raising $34,000 for local charities in the process.

This year, over 700 people joined us at the Riverview Theater to hear the heartfelt, funny, and moving stories of this year’s cast. It was a magical night, the stories and emotions lingering long after the show. If you weren’t able to make it to the theater to see the stories unfold live, you can now watch it on YouTube by clicking on this playlist!

Thank you to our local sponsors for their ongoing support of the Twin Cities LTYM Show!

We also invite you to experience voices from our shows all across North America featuring powerful true stories that capture all facets of contemporary parenting (as well as stories about our own upbringing) including very timely personal narratives given the recent events in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Shaker Heights, and Dallas. On the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel we feature a variety of playlists by topic, and for 2016 we’ve added two new playlists–one with stories about race, and another with stories from LGBTQ families.

This time two weeks ago, we were nervously wondering how our fourth Listen to Your Mother show would go in the The Cities.

As you can probably guess, there was absolutely nothing to worry about.

Our cast was more than ready.

Tomorrow Is The Big Day, #TwinCities!

May 4, 2016

We can hardly believe it, but the big day is finally here— Listen to Your Mother Twin Cities is TOMORROW! Our stunning cast is ready to shine. Our amazing emcee is ready to take the stage again. The Riverview is ready to be filled to the brim. And we are ready to shine a light on what is already so, so very golden, which is our fourth annual show, our Mother’s Day tradition, our gift from Ann Imig. P.S. Our show is 100% sold out, doors will open at 6:15, and the popcorn is famously delish, so bring cash for that! See you tomorrow, Twin Cities! We want to take a moment to really thank our local sponsors. Not only do they make our show possible, but they come back to support women and storytelling and the arts and this show year after year. So if you’re in need of any of these […]

Listen To Your Mother Twin Cities: Our Local Sponsors and Cause!

March 16, 2016

Listen To Your Mother may be a national phenomenon but one of its strengths is that each show reflects the city in which it takes place. This hyperlocal focus extends from the producers and cast to the sponsors. Each show celebrates and benefits its community, as a portion of ticket sales go to a local charity. We’ve introduced you to the cast but now it’s time to formally introduce you to our sponsors. The Twin Cities show has been fortunate to have sponsors that support the show and keep coming back. This year, all of our local sponsors are returning to help us bring our stories and celebration of motherhood to the stage at the Riverview Theater.       We are thrilled with their continued support and hope that you will give them yours. Like their pages and use their services! We are also excited to announce that we are once again partnering with […]
