The Mother of All Shows

HollyFinkBecoming a mother is hard enough, but imagine giving birth to a show about motherhood that would become a national sensation? That’s exactly what happened to Ann Imig, creator of the show Listen to Your Mother, which expanded from her hometown of Madison, Wisconsin to 10 cities nationwide including New York City. Listen To Your Mother is a series of readings by New York writers in celebration of all aspects of motherhood.

Westchester moms, Holly Rosen Fink of Larchmont, and Betsy Cadel of Edgemont, are both Associate Producers of the New York City Event. Fink, founder of MamaDrama and long-time passionate theater-goer said, “I could not be more honored and awed by the women that I'm working with to bring this production to the stage." Cadel, is a writer, author and blogger in her own right, many of you may even be familiar with her popular book KidSavvy Westchester: A Parents’ Guide of Information & Inspiration .

Through a rigorous audition process the cast was ultimately narrowed down to 13 engaging authors, performers, high-profile bloggers and journalists each telling their own story. “The themes are so diverse that there is definitely something that will resonate with every mom.” Cadel said. Westchester mom and television personality, Rene Syler of Chappaqua, will be hosting the event. She is best known as an anchor on The Early Show on CBS and through her book and website BetsyCadel GoodEnoughMom.com.

In the spirit of the community of motherhood each show has chosen a local charity to donate to. The NYC show will donate 10% of the ticket sale proceeds to the Room to Grow Organization.

The performance is May 6th at the JCC of Manhattan at 2pm. This is a great idea for a moms’ day out in the city, but definitely leave the kids at home as the material, while perfect for you, is not suitable for them.

The show is nearly sold out so to order tickets or find out more information go to: Listentoyourmothershow.com.
