0

Four Atlanta actors will take audiences on a journey with a joyous and loving look at the blessings and perils of being a mom in the new musical sensation, Motherhood the Musical®, on stage September 22 to November 20 at the 14th Street Playhouse. The show is produced by GFour Productions, the team who has successfully brought Menopause The Musical® to every major market in the United States. Menopause The Musical® is the longest running musical in Atlanta history and grossed close to $6 million dollars during the show’s three-year run.

Local Atlanta actors have been chosen to play the roles of four women who share their insights of being moms – the challenges and the pleasures. Ingrid Cole will play Brooke, the lawyer, who works too much and barely sees her kids. Jewel Lucien plays Tasha, a single mom struggling to balance work, her family and her divorce. Mary Kathryn Kaye will play Barb, an over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five and Lisa Manuli plays Amy, a soon-to-be first time mom. Christy Baggett and Samantha McKinnon Brown have been cast in the understudy roles. All actors are members of the professional union Actors’ Equity Association.

Marcus Autism Center has also been selected as the official primary charity of the Atlanta Motherhood the Musical® engagement. Marcus Autism Center is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of children with autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities, treating more than 4,000 children a year. To support Marcus Autism Center, Motherhood the Musical® is offering a special $5 discount off with the code “MARCUS” and $2 from each ticket sold will be donated to the Marcus Autism Center.

Motherhood the Musical® is the work of author and #1 songwriter, Sue Fabisch and features the hilarious Top 10 Billboard Comedy Hit “The Kids Are Finally Asleep,” the rousing “Costco Queen” and the tender “I’m Danny’s Mom.” This hysterical and poignant musical is a must-see for anyone who is, has, or knows a Mom and it will remind you that it’s not just about Motherhood…it’s about you. The four-member company will be directed and choreographed by Broadway’s Lisa Shriver and the award-winning Johnny Rodgers will supply music direction & supervision, arrangements and orchestrations.
