Our first annual Listen To Your Mother Show took place yesterday at Alverno's Wehr Hall.
And Jen, the co producer, and I, have to thank the city of Milwaukee for coming to celebrate Mother's Day with us. We have to thank the cast for giving our show the magic we knew it would have.
Our guests found their way to our stage after the show to say, "I had no idea!" "Wow. I couldn't picture it, but this was amazing."
There was the wonderful "I'm coming back next year, with my mother!" But best of all, "I think I want to be part of this."
There are so many moments that are gratifying, like the executive director of our local cause thanking us afterward and telling us, "I really, really loved this."
All of this was possible because of the support of family, friends, and our community, through attending and being witness to the power of shared experience.
So powerful because there is energy being exchanged between reader, audience, producers. It's a charge that begins at point A and is received by point B who's been hungry for it, which thrills point A to be able to feed it, and grows into something like a Tesla coil that can't be held in a room anymore! I swear, mid show, I thought we were all going to faint from so many breath-held moments.
More on all that later, the almost fainting and all, but we can't begin today without shouting
Milwaukee, the cast and production crew of Listen To Your Mother Milwaukee, THANKS YOU!!
