It’s Showtime!

Tonight on a historic stage on the Marietta Square, 13 new voices will add theirs to a collective over 1,000 strong as they turn their invisible tassels and graduate from Listen To Your Mother cast to alumna.

I could not be more excited about the stories being shared tonight. I could not be more proud of the women (and one man!) who have trusted Jana and me and Listen To Your Mother to amplify their stories over the past two years.

Listen To Your Mother Atlanta Stage

These stories are uplifting, heartbreaking, humorous, and sometimes all three at once and then some. They are stories of courage and bravery and self-discovery and survival in the face of some of the hardest challenges life has lobbed their way.

These are stories of resilience and triumph.

I’m proud to call these women (and Benjamin) not only fellow storytellers but also friends. My life is better for having met them, my heart more full.

To our cast, past and present, thank you for trusting us with your stories. Thank you for taking a chance, a risk. Thank you for saying yes.

To Jana, thank you for being on this journey with me. There’s no one else I would rather have by my side as we bring this show to life each year.

To Ann Imig, thank you for your vision and direction. Thank you for believing in us and in Atlanta. My life is forever changed because of you.

I am so grateful to you and Jana that I got to be part of your show and get to be the sole male alumnus (so far) among the alumnae. Because of your help and editing, I was able to get my first essay ever printed, and I will never forget that – particularly considering the difficult birth that I put you through regarding all that editing.

I’m so glad that you’re my friend. I cannot wait to see you tonight and watch the new readers kick all kinds of butt.
