Responses to MOM’s first staged reading.
A story all ages can enjoy and relate to!
“My Other Mother” is a story of reconciling an imagined, idealistic family with the reality of complex, broken, beautiful human beings. It is the story of hope, disappointment, and ultimately, redemption in mother-daughter and sister-sister relationships.
Really great production. I thought everything was incredible — the writing, the music, the actors. Well done!
It’s a fascinating story about one woman’s struggle to find her identity.
Just about everyone knows someone who was adopted, has given a child up for adoption, or has adopted a child. Walk through the life of an adoptee, from childhood to adult, as she dreams of what could be, finds out what the reality of life was in the family she never had, and adjusts to the news as her birth family is revealed to her. I loved this play!
I am SO AMAZED & INSPIRED by your creative team and the story you are sharing… I am SO impressed and could really see the vision of this thing being professionally mounted.
This is the story of a woman who seeks to learn the truth about her roots and in her journey she not only learns about her family but discovers a lot about herself.
I loved every moment of it.
In this age of internet search capabilities, MOM is an incredibly timely story of one woman’s search for her biological family, her past and ultimately, herself — the desire to feel connected. It is a realistic look at the happy and unhappy aspects of that process.
What a great story and the music was outstanding. I can imagine how great it would be with a full production!
There are things about this play and this family that everyone can relate to. You will walk away from it, but you won’t stop thinking about it.
“My Other Mother” tells the story of how we struggle with who we are based on our family history and the impact of choices made by our family members and ourselves.
Thank you for sharing such a personal story. It makes one reflect on one’s own place in the family and how our biological roots affect our personalities.
My Other Mother is a universal story that anyone can relate too. We all have a family that we are born into, and one that we have the power to choose for ourselves. MOM speaks to that truth in all of us. It teaches us that rage can be powerful, but love, of friends, family, and yourself, is ever mightier.
A sensitive, thoughtful, heartwarming portrayal of family dynamics.
MOM is a wonderful story that teaches you about yourself and the world we live in. It deals with real problems and real people and is something I could see being on a Broadway stage one day.
This play is too big to keep local. Can imagine it on a Broadway stage and beyond! The story is terrific.
