For the first time ever, Mother's Day in Rhode Island will be celebrated on stage. Providence is one of 24 cities across the US hosting writer/blogger Ann Imig's nationally celebrated reading series, Listen To Your Mother. The critically acclaimed stage series has been featured in the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, and on local NPR stations.

Listen To Your Mother

Listen To Your Mother is a national series of live readings by local writers in celebration of Mother’s Day. Born of the creative mind of Ann Imig and the work of mothers who publish online, each production is directed produced and performed by local communities for local communities. 

The first ever performance in Rhode Island–and the inaugural show for Providence–will take place on Saturday, May 4 at 2:00pm at the historical Providence Public Library Auditorium.

Listen To Your Mother is a live stage production of local writers reading their original stories about motherhood–inspiring, humorous, contemplative pieces will be read by 14 cast members from Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

The team behind the mothers

The Local Directors/Producers Team, Moms and bloggers Laura Rossi Totten and Carla Molina Martins are very excited about the show and have announced the cast and local sponsors including:  Rhody Mamas, Rejuvaderm, Haute Tags, Egan Images, Tong Collection and Ian Travis Barnard Photography to name just a few.
