Motherhood the Musical® is a four-woman show created by author and songwriter Sue Fabisch, a mother who understands that sometimes the best way to cope with the joys and trials of motherhood is to share the experience with other moms. The musical shares the humorous and loving journey of Amy, a soon-to-be first-time mom; Barb, an over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five; Brooke, a lawyer who works too much and barely sees her kids; and Tasha, a single mom struggling to balance work, family and a divorce.
"Motherhood the Musical® is the rare show that audiences not only relate to - they actually can ‘see' themselves on stage through the cast's portrayal of common experiences all moms have," said Kathi Glist, Motherhood the Musical® producer and co-founder of GFour Productions. "From being pregnant to succumbing to driving a minivan, from facing an empty nest to anxiously awaiting one's first grandchild, the musical really covers the entire wonderful, crazy journey of being a mom."
Special discounts are available for groups of 10 or more and are available by calling the Trinity Rep Box Office at 401-351-4242 or Jennifer Ruffner at 888-686-8587, #11.
