Happy February! I have some great news. "Expressing Motherhood," the live show in which moms offer entertaining tales about raising little ones (and big ones), is coming back to Los Angeles in March. Not only that, but I'm giving away a pair of tickets to one of the shows. (See below.)
If you haven't seen a performance of "Expressing Motherhood," I highly recommend it. I attended one of the Mother's Day shows last year, and it was both poignant and hilarious. Created by two moms, Lindsay Kavet and Jessica Cribbs, the show features real moms who write and perform their own work.
On stage at the intimate Elephant Space in West Hollywood, the atmosphere is supportive and moving. Seeing these women talk about such personal moments, including the frustrations of childbirth or the challenges of raising a child with special needs, is inspiring and empowering. You can really hear your own voice in the words of another mom. I know I did.
