Lights! Camera! Action!
I’m gonna be famous!!
But I am doing something pretty big that I’m super pumped about …
If you don’t follow me on Facebook (wait! what?! you don’t follow my antics on Facebook?? hold on. let’s fix this … click here and then click Like on the page. you’ll be glad, I promise.) … ok, so where were we? Oh, yeah. If you don’t follow me on Facebook or talk to me in person, you might not have heard about my latest adventure: I’m a producer now. Yup, I’m a
big time, rich, and famous, fancy pants producer. I basically eat dinner and have drinks with Steven Spielberg and James Cameron every night since we’re besties these days.
Well, not quite.
But I actually am producing a show. And I’m working with two amazing women who are directing it: Amanda Mushro (who writes Questionable Choices in Parenting) and Stephanie Jankowski (writer of When Crazy Meets Exhaustion).
I’m absolutely thrilled to be producing Listen To Your Mother–a live show where a dozen local writers will read pieces they’ve written on motherhood. There will be laughter and tears, nodding and mmmhhmmming, fist pumping and applause. We’ll be giving motherhood a microphone to share personal stories of struggle, perseverance, joy, growth, understanding, frustration, success, kindness, warmth, and love.
Here’s a great video to showcase what exactly is Listen to Your Mother:
You can watch performances from past shows on YouTube–Listen To Your Mother (and my favorite performance of them all by Jessica Rapisarda). It makes me so happy to know that I get to be a part of the team that will shine a light on talented local writers and motherhood. We’ll be giving people a voice so their stories can be heard. And we also will be shining a light on a local charity to benefit women and mothers by donating a portion of all ticket sales to the cause.
I can hardly wait!
And this is where it really all gets started: our call for auditions.

If you’re in the Pittsburgh area or want to travel this way, I hope to see you at the show on Friday, May 8th–either on stage or watching from the audience! (More details to come.)
