We Did It

I’m overwhelmed and deeply touched by all the love and support of the people who came out to see Mother Tongue this week (and by that of all the well-wishers from afar). The last month has been full of hard work and big laughs and panic and hope, of course, good ol’ fashioned mom-guilt. In the end, I’m truly proud of the show we made. I’m relieved and a little depressed that it’s over. And I’m looking forward to figuring out what’s in store for Mother Tongue in the future.

That last pic is my fantastic team- Ellie Rabinowitz, Hector Machado, Alice Taverner, Jacob Loeb and Robert Cucuzza. Because not even a solo show is a solo endeavor.

Mostly, I’m happy to have a proper weekend to spend with T. And daddy comes home tomorrow! Smack into the middle of “carmageddon” with the L.A. freeway closures. Hopefully we’ll see him before Monday.

    Hi! I am the friend of the Howertons’ that saw your show with them on Saturday night. It was really amazing and you did a wonderful job. It was so powerful. Kristen was crying, my husband was emotional, and I wanted to run for the door (which is my version of emotional b/c I prefer to avoid “big feelings”). For some reason, I get a LOT of crap regarding our family composition and I really needed a night with folks in my “tribe.” Not only did I get to spend some time with the Howertons, but your production proved to be cathartic and meaningful. Thanks for all of your hard work.
