Last night was opening night of Motherhood Out Loud at Avenue Theater and it was FANTASTIC! This show is for anyone that is, has, or is planning on being a Mother. So, I guess that means everyone (guys too.) I'm a dad, so a lot of this show I saw happen with my wife and even experienced some of what a Mother goes through as well, but this has so much more. From the massive unknown before a child comes into this world, all the way to when rolls switch and child becomes parent. The coolest thing is that all the scenes and monologues were written by a whole gaggle of different women writers from TV, stage, film, novels, you name it. And they ALL work perfectly together. I experienced everything from full-on "i-ve-been-there-before-laughs" to tears of joy on how beautiful life can be to tears of sorrow at how fragile and fleeting life can be. The cast is spot on across the board and throughout the show! You will walk away thinking wo words. "Thanks Mom!" Oh, and call her if you can. Go. See. This. Show.
