My Brain is a Scary, Crowded Place

In just under two weeks (12 days but who’s counting), our Kansas City area cast of Listen To Your Mother will be taking the stage at Liberty Hall.

To say that it’s a roller coaster of emotions for me is maybe a bit of an understatement.

It feels a little like having a baby….we’ve been working on it for many months….preparing for it, thinking about it, talking about it, thinking about it. There are so many things that go into the backstage stuff that you don’t think about unless you are in the position to get it all done. Like, nobody tells you that when you’re pregnant, your ankles will swell so much that you can’t put your shoes on. Or maybe they do, but you give them a empathetic look and go on about your business with your cute little size 7 sneakers on.

But anyway, our sweet little kicking all night and won’t let us sleep for all the things to think and worry about baby is about to be born. I wish I could convey just exactly how much of a HUGE DEAL it is for me. Not only because we’ve worked so hard to put it all together for the very first time and I wrote something that, to me, is really pretty scary to think about saying out loud, but also because we put this cast together out of some really, really, REALLY amazing contenders and I want people to hear their stories. A lot of people. Because they need to be heard. and I know there are people that need to hear them.

So anyway. I’m not the kind of person that will just come right out and tell people how I feel very often. It’s so much easier to write it out and then have a mini panic attack when I send it out into the world. BUT. If you are in the area and can make it to the show on May 1st, just know that it means so much more to me than I could ever express. Please come meet our baby in the hospital.
