Have you ever seen such interviews? They're a phenomenon in Westwood, and I would feel remiss if I didn't share them with you. Everyone has a mother, and it's clear no one lacks for words on the subject. Here they are, Mothers on the Street.
Writers love to talk--and write--about mothers, too. Their own mothers, themselves as mothers, their daughters as mothers, their grandmothers as mothers. It's a rich tapestry for all of us. If you are in Los Angeles, I'd love for you to see In Mother Words at the Geffen Playhouse.
The show begins previews tonight and opens on February 23. The journey to the moment has been as exciting, funny, and poignant as the show itself. It all began with a group of up writing about our experiences with motherhood. I'm the show's stepmother, and my piece is "My Almost Family."
My work--on the same stage as Beth Henley's? I'm in awe.
