Time to Listen to Your Mother again!

Yes! It's true! 

New York City's Listen to Your Mother show will be back this May.

I will once again be producing, and working with a great team: returning Director Amy Wilson, and Associate Producer Holly Rosen Fink, and joined this year by two more wonderful writer/blogger/media gurus: Associate Producer Nancy Friedman and Assistant Director Shari Simpson.

Last year’s show was such a resounding success (selling out weeks before the performance) that we needed a bigger venue for this year’s show – much, MUCH bigger…

And thus we are thrilled to announce that in 2013, New York City’s Listen to Your Mother show will be performed at:

Symphony Space

on Sunday, May 12th (Mother’s Day)

at 5 PM

So this year on Mother’s Day… spend the DAY with your family but the EVENING with your friends and us!

(Tickets are even already on sale, here!)

If you don't know what the Listen to Your Mother show is? It's a national series of original live readings by local writers in celebration of Mother's Day.

If you don’t know Symphony Space? Located at 2537 Broadway (at 95th St.) it is a pre-eminent multi-disciplinary performing arts center on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, renowned for world-class music, film, stage, dance and literary productions and events.

We are thrilled to be bringing LTYM:NYC to a whole new level – and larger audience – here this May.

And if you’re interested in being in the show, come visit the LTYM:NYC website next week… where we’ll be announcing the call for auditions!

*If you are like me you can nevermore read those words: "Tri-State Area" without hearing them in a funny-fakey German accent - thanks to Phineas & Ferb.


  1. I wish there were one in Los Angeles!

  2. Me too - can you try to make one happen next year? With a production team of 4 or 5, it's not that much work for each person involved. I would LOVE to see you read your work someday. xoxoxo

  3. I hear Phineas and Ferb all the time in my head. It's a problem.

    How exciting to be involved in this! Good luck with the show!

  4. I may just submit something for the St. Louis show, even though the thought of reading in public frightens me.


I am so sorry to have to turn word verification back on, but the spam-bots have found me - yikes!
