41 cities across North America, LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER Shows are filling up local community theatres with stories that celebrate the role of motherhood. All occurring within two weeks of Mother's Day in recognition of the diversity and unlimited possibility of the motherhood theme.
I've been helping to produce LTYM shows for four years now, and two years before that, I was part of the LTYM show in Madison.
I believe in LTYM shows because I see how sharing our stories help us to see how we are united more than we are divided: we have to find the common instead of seeking out the different.
As a co-producer of LTYM Milwaukee, I have the privilege of playing a part in helping Milwaukee hear the voices that need to be heard. I also get to experience how supportive and receptive our Milwaukee community is when they come attend our shows, and when local media offers to spread the word of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER.
Milwaukee's Morning Blend show is such a community supporter, and I had the pleasure of being able to talk LTYM on their show last week. If you want to learn more about LTYM and hear from one of our 11 2016 cast members, you can watch the 5 minute segment here.
