Listen To Your Mother 2012 Videos

Did you hear the news?

Listen To Your Mother 2012- all ten cities including Northwest Indiana's SOLD OUT SHOW- is now online. Free to watch at your leisure, although I will suggest you view each one beginning to end if you can. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll nod your head... and maybe (hopefully) you'll even think about sharing your own story. 

I guess I haven't made an official announcement or anything, but due to our recent move to Ohio I'll no longer be directing and producing in Northwest Indiana. That doesn't mean the show won't go on- Ann will be taking applications for all cities later this year and someone could totally step up and take over. 

As for me, I can't imagine not having some part in a production for 2013 and beyond, especially as the Listen To Your Mother movement continues to grow. I'd love to bring LTYM to Ohio, but a big ingredient in making the show successful is having a strong presence in the community, and for me that will take some time. Honestly, though, who knows what could be waiting up ahead. I still sometimes feel like it's all a dream... to have directed and produced two smashing shows - I look back and am like - who was that person? I am so proud of her. 

I am in awe all over again at my all-star cast. I've linked to individual readers and pieces here and below, and included their blogs if they have one. You'll find a few of this year's readers don't even have an online presence or consider themselves a writer. But everyone- everyone- has a story to tell, and I've found that most people love to listen to a good story.

  2. Can't wait to sit down and listen to them again...It was an amazing show. And I'm sure an Ohio show is in your future. You have a right to be proud of YOU! And Ivy is the perfect little model! Love the piggy tails..

  3. Both of your shows were tremendous! I will really miss sitting in the audience with goosebumps running up and down my arms and seeing you gather and bring together all of these beautiful words. But I will wait patiently for your show in Canton and be the first to hit the highway to get there and sit in the audience:)) XO

  4. Beautiful. I'm slowly making my way through them all.

  5. Yay! So excited to watch the videos.

  6. I'm going to have to spend some time this weekend watching... :)

  7. Awesomesauce!! Thank ou for sharing. I have been wanting to see what it is that you do in this, but living in Alabama has kept from coming to see. :)

  8. Feel free to email me. I had wanted to bring it to Ohio last year but didn't feel ready to take on something that size by myself.


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
