Listen To Me …in Listen to Your Mother Pittsburgh


Listen up, yinz.

Tickets are now on sale for LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER PITTSBURGH on Friday, May 6 beginning at 8 p.m. in the Carnegie Lecture Hall. I’d love to see as many of you in the audience as possible. This show means the world to me — not just because of me and my story being included but because all women’s voices and stories have value and importance.

(Oh, you missed my announcement that me and my writing are part of this amazing show? Go here.)

About the 13 other women who are reading their stories on May 6:  they are awesome writers, mothers, and just all around great people.  They kick ass and they take names and they will leave you crying and laughing.

Tickets are just $20 and are available first-come, first serve. It will likely sell out … last year’s show sold out fast and in the first few days, sales this year have been quite brisk.  DO. NOT. DELAY. Note that if this show was a movie, it would be rated PG-13, which means some of the content is not suitable for very young children.  

A percentage of Listen to Your Mother ticket sales will benefit Jeremiah’s Place, a 24/7 safe nursery in Pittsburgh for children ages 6 and under for free, temporary short-term care when families are in crises or experiencing an emergency situation and need safe care for their children. That crisis may be emergency medical care, urgent childcare needs, and care of children at risk for child abuse. Jeremiah’s Place serves the needs of all families when they have no other safe option for childcare and helps prevent child abuse, addresses the needs of homeless children, and provides safe child care when families have no other options.

If you are able to make it to the ‘Burgh on Mother’s Day weekend, I would love to see you. (And if that’s not possible, I do understand the distance factor. Believe me, I get it.)

But trust me on this.
