Listen To Your Mother – Practice, Practice, Practice!

Dear Friends and Lovers,

Listen To Your Mother is happening May 11, 3pm and I am honored to be a member of her cast as that —>
badge proudly proclaims.  Yesterday was our second and final rehearsal, held at Madison’s historic Barrymore Theater.



Hungry Podium wants to eat you.

Listen To Your Mother has been described as the “Vagina Monologues of Motherhood” but having now witnessed the power of these personal stories firsthand, I think of it more as a “Feminist Fallopian You Tube”.  We’re droppin’ truth bombs like eggs.  This cast brings heartfelt poetry, a manifesto for the ages and a retelling of a past we’ve all cycled through and survived to the Barrymore stage.

Listen To Your Mother is electric and satisfying and inspiring and I am excited to share my story with you on Mother’s Day.  Please join me and all these amazing women at the Barrymore on May 11th at 3pm. Tickets are $15 on sale at, by phone at 608-241-8633 ($1.50 convenience fee), at all Barrymore outlets as well as Happy BambinoThe Century House gift shop, and Dragonfly Hot Yoga Middleton.

Here’s more from the theater:


We’ll be down here waiting for you. We’ll be waiting for you down here. We’ll be down here until it’s time to go on stage.

There will be plenty of refreshments available.



Our show is PG-13, just like the theater’s lobby art!

  1. Oh the Barrymore, with all it’s charm – and by “charm” I mean dirty stairs and last night’s popcorn on the floor. This was a great post!! My favorite —-> “Feminist Fallopian You Tube”. We’re droppin’ truth bombs like eggs.


  2. I’ll watch you as soon as it’s put up on youtube! I wrote a piece that was selected to audition for the Kansas City Listen to Your Mother. I bombed the audition because I’m not very good at public speaking. Maybe another year…
    Can’t wait to see you on Youtube!! :)
