This much estrogen, what do you expect?

http://www.listentoyourmothershow.com/stlouis/2013/03/15/cast-ltymstl-2013/

First, the audition; yesterday, was the cast meet and greet (and eat); next two weeks, the rehearsals.
MAY 11th, two performances.

I am so excited to be part of this wonderful group of women. I am telling you, the stories are phenomenal.Cast member,  Kim Lenhoff  gives an overview on her blog of what it is like to have a girl crush on all of these amazing women. Click on her name to read about the hippie love.


The introductions were fun. Each of us told about ourselves. I wish I had said, "Drizzle dark chocolate on it, and I will eat it."

In the beginning, no matter how friendly people are, we all tend to hold back and present a professional air. But when you get a group of women together in an informal setting, the estrogen flows, the guffaws happen, the connections occur and we are one...with the same issues, the same emotions, the uh-huhs and amen sisters! The energy in that auditorium yesterday could have powered a small community. The stories were so moving, heart warming, gut wrenching and humorous, we were all weeping. Kim had a little allergy/sinus issue. Thank goodness she brought a box of Kleenex to share.

Click on the above link to discover the cast (you might know someone) and more information about the May 11th event. This is a nationwide stage performance honoring motherhood and benefitting a women's not for profit. We have some major sponsors and an amazing cast. You will not be disappointed. Please purchase your tickets for Listen To Your Mother St. Louis soon. They are selling fast.

I'm guessing that putting a Tweety Bird Pez dispenser on a friend's knee in THIS audience would not be frowned upon.

I wanted to warn Bill to look out for stage-door Johnnies. Then I made the mistake of Googling that term. Bill REALLY needs to look out for stage door Johnnies.
