We’re Back, Twin Cities!

by Galit on November 18, 2014

Well hello, Twin Cities! Tracy, Vikki, and I over the moon to be back for our third Listen to Your Mother show!

At a national level, we have so many exciting things to announce…

There are 29 returning cities hosting LTYM shows this year!

There are 10 brand new cities!

And the first ever Listen to Your Mother book is available for pre-sale right now — and it has several Twin Cities alumni essays in it!

And, locally, our two alumni casts and the three of us are revving up for our third season.

We absolutely can’t wait to hear your — yes, your — stories. We’ll have plenty of information in the next few months about auditions and show dates and gentle nudges to share your words, so follow LTYM on Twitter and Facebook to stay in loop.

To whet your appetite, take a look at the 2015 announcement video. It’s absolutely fabulous.

Thank you, Twin Cities!

May 15, 2014

Last Thursday over 500 people joined us at The Riverview Theatre for the second annual Twin Cities Listen to Your Mother show! Our gorgeous, super-engaged audience was filled with family, friends, and strangers open to something Tracy, Vikki, and I value with every fiber of our being: storytelling. And apparently, singing in rounds thanks to our ridiculously talented emcee Lorna Landvik! Our amazing audience laughed together, we passed each other tissues, and we looked at each other with the kind of eyes that say, I see you. Each of our storytellers took the stage like she owned it. And our audience loved her like an old friend. While each story was as unique as the woman who penned it, they wove together to tell the collective tale of motherhood. Here’s a taste from each chapter. I never wanted children. I don’t want to have my baby in any of these places, in any of the […]

The Show is THIS WEEK!

May 4, 2014

We had our final rehearsal for our 2014 show. It’s been a week since our rehearsal, and yet I’ve had a hard time putting the magic of those few hours into words that make sense. Which is ironic as our show and our rehearsal are all about the words. The beauty of their stories overwhelm me – so I will let the photos from this rehearsal tell their own tale.   The stories of motherhood that are hilarious. The stories that are heartbreaking. The stories that we can all relate to. Our rehearsal was not only spent listening again to their words – but discussing a bit of business and logistics about the night of the show – when to arrive, what to wear, where to meet, and how to relax and enjoy the moment. Because for many – getting up a stage is something they’ve done many times, yet for some it’s […]

Two Weeks Until Listen To Your Mother #TwinCities

April 23, 2014

It’s hard to believe that the LTYM Twin Cities show is just about two weeks away. It’s interesting as our second annual show approaches. The nerves and unknowns were so big for us last year – with our first baby – but now we, as seasoned show-producer-mothers, are a bit more relaxed and taking more time to enjoy this part of the process before the big show. We are enjoying meeting with sponsors, sharing our charity, working with media, and of course getting to know our cast. The second baby always feels a little easier because you’ve done it before and can take whatever comes your way and know that in the end it will all be okay. Now if that toddler would just give you five minutes to yourself. In fact last week one of our sponsors hosted an incredible gathering for both of our casts. Our inaugural LTYM show cast have […]
