Oh, What A Night

by Galit on May 23, 2015

It’s hard to believe that Listen to Your Mother is already two weeks gone.

It was, in a word, breathtaking.


The nerves.


The friendships.


Were all new. But this year, there was also the tradition of the show.


Lorna Landvik was back as our emcee. She’s been with us since the beginning.


Members of both of our alumni casts came early for hugs and photos (and to usher!)!


And before we knew it, it was time to open the doors.


And absolutely fill the Riverview Theatre. (700 people!)


Lorna surprised us by bringing her ukulele. (I bet not everyone can say that!)


And our cast, ohmyheart, our cast. Every story, every word, every hug, every high-five, and every cheer they gave each other, our audience, and us took our breath away. They absolutely knocked this night out of the park.


And all too soon, it was over.


Thank you, Twin Cities.


For a night to remember.


We’ll see you next year!



Speaking of breathtaking, all photo credit ridiculously gratefully to

Our third Listen To Your Mother – Twin Cities show is tomorrow – May 7th! We are excited, nervous, proud, and honestly just ready to shine tomorrow.


The cast is ready – and the stories are unique and beautiful and funny and heartbreaking. It will be a show to remember.


We are so grateful again to our sponsors and will continue to love them throughout the year.


Lorna Landvik is ready to emcee again this year(and we just want to pinch ourselves because we are so lucky to have her), and I’m sure she will have some surprises for all of us.

Reading Goddess- Gail, Pam & Lorna

The Riverview Theater is ready and we will be busy setting up to greet all of you tomorrow for the show. (Bring money for their amazing popcorn).


We are so humbled again to give back 10% off all ticket sales to our cause partner – The Jeremiah Program.


And you all must be ready – but tickets are pretty much sold-out..we will have a few at the door tomorrow – so come early if you still need one. Tickets are $20 at the door, cash only.


Doors open at 6:15 and the show starts promptly at 7:00.


Thank you, Twin Cities, for again celebrating Mother’s Day with us! See you at the show!

Listen to Your Mother #TwinCities is One Week From Show Date, A Thank You To Our Local Sponsors

April 30, 2015

We can hardly believe our show is one week from today! The stories are ready to be told, our readers are ready to shine, and if the last two years have taught us anything, we know that our audience is more than ready, too! We wanted to take a moment to thank our local sponsors, without whom Listen to Your Mother Twin Cities would not be able to happen. Brady Kroll is a local realtor with as much heart as savvy. His testimonials say it all, but whether he’s working with you to sell or buy, it’s obvious he knows that he’s working with a home, not a house. Mandy is the talent behind the lens of Glimpses of Soul Photography. She’s known for being a natural light, on-location photographer and also has a small St. Paul studio for newborn and headshot sessions. Dr. Jennifer Eisenhuth and her team are known for being warm, […]

Our First Rehearsal

March 25, 2015

I had a hard time falling asleep the night before our first rehearsal. I tossed and turned all Saturday night in anticipation of the day. In all honesty, the first rehearsal is my favorite day of all of the Listen To Your Mother days. Sure, I love auditions and carefully and emotionally putting the pieces together that become the stories from our cast. And yes, our more formal final rehearsal and show night are incredible. But it’s the first rehearsal that always gets me. Always.   Because it’s the first time that all of their stories come together to make a show and a tapestry of interwoven stories….for you. It’s the first time the stories are told as almost one of what motherhood means to each of them, to us, and to you.   And it’s always magic. And the smiles and tears and nods and hugs and seriously, uncontrollable laughter at times. […]

Listen To Your Mother #twincities 2015 – Continue Meeting The Cast!

February 27, 2015

This week we first introduced you to Paula, Emily, Lindsey, and Elizabeth, and then you met Jeanne, Patsy, Marsha, and Sarah . Now it’s time to get to know Heather, Kyrra, Alice, and Kris. Heather says she’s a writer, but when it comes to writing her own bio, help is needed. Naturally, she asked two reliable sources: Facebook and her 12 year old son. The son suggested the following, “You should write that I rarely listen.” All evidence purports this to be true. Facebook peeps suggested the following, “Lover of cupcakes and donuts. Guilty of swearing too much. Recovering perfectionist. Aspires to inspire.” Evidence seems to confirm these as well. Lastly, we should report Heather’s self proclamation as a passionate mental health advocate and blogger at Life’s a Disco Ball. In one word, she describes herself as a fighter. But mostly, she just feels like a ginormous goofball that loves to make people laugh and love.    Kyrra […]
