LTYM Providence

I was privileged to be in the audience of LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER Providence tonight. In a way, I owe a debt of gratitude to Providence, as it is where Jessica met Phyllis, and they decided to try to bring the show to Boston together with me tagging along.

It was the first time I've actually sat in the audience for a LTYM show, and it was a wonderful perspective. Just like the Boston production, there were amazing stories that I'll be continuing to think about long after tonight. But I think the thing I loved most is seeing the little interactions between the cast. The way the person sitting next to you congratulates you after you read, maybe squeezing your hand briefly, the way eyes lock from one side of the stage to the other. LTYM is a team sport - no one shares their story alone. We all sit on stage together on purpose. Your cast and your production team literally have your back should you falter. And that way, no one actually falters. 

Congratulations, Providence 2014. Thanks for a lovely evening.
