Lisa Peterson, who has been developing the piece with over a dozen writers the past few seasons, will direct the Off-Broadway limited engagement that will play through Oct. 29 at 59E59 Theaters.
Here, Givenik.com meets the cast of Motherhood Out Loud while in rehearsals for the new Off-Broadway production. Graff (City of Angels, Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof) and Ekulona (Well, The Thugs) appeared in a 2009 developmental run of Motherhood at the Bay Street Theatre. Lecesne (Boys in the Band) was part of the Hartford Stage premiere and recent Geffen Playhouse run (under the title In Mother Words). Bacon (Rock 'n' Roll, Happy Now?) is new to the production.
According to Primary Stages, "When entrusting the subject of motherhood to such a dazzling collection of celebrated American writers, what results is a joyous, moving, hilarious, and altogether thrilling theatrical play. Utterly unpredictable, Motherhood Out Loud shatters traditional notions about parenthood, unveils its inherent comedy and celebrates the deeply personal truths that span and unite generations. Motherhood Out Loud reveals with illuminating insight the humor, raw emotions and rocky roads we experience in life."
