My Sweet Ride to “Listen To Your Mother”

by Shari on May 13, 2014

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chevrolet’s sponsorship of Listen to Your Mother Show, but opinions are my own. 

Score! After assistant-directing (and performing in) the NYC production of “Listen To Your Mother” for the past two years, I finally got the chance to be a real audience member! I was able to travel to the inaugural production of LTYM in North Jersey at the South Orange Performing Arts Center. And the traveling was sweet, btw.

Here is a shot of me and my buddy, LTYM NYC director Amy Wilson driving our gorgeous 2014 Chevy Impala through the streets of Joisey. If you notice the lovely sunroof that is CLOSED behind us, just know that as soon as we reached to open it, the sun immediately disappeared and no way were we showing up at LTYM with our exquisite coifs ruined by rain. But I did enjoy rubbing the beautiful leather, child-snack-crumb-free interior of our Chevy, so I think that makes it even.

Amy and I have been friends for a while, so we got to chat about our crazy lives for a good long time, punctuated by the “ooh”’s and “ah”’s of discovering something new in our ride. The little live-action dashboard video that shows if you’re going to hit another car while parallel parking? NICE. That sure would have helped me that time a few years back when I was pulling into a tight spot in Hoboken and scraped off the entire side of someone’s expensive automobile that was three days off the lot. But that’s another (horror) story for another day. *weeps uncontrollably for a moment, pulls herself together*

I like this picture out in front of South Orange Performing Arts Center because it looks like I dressed to match the car. The hubcaps even match the pattern on my dress. Isn’t it crazy how I’m always on the cutting edge of fashion?

Here’s Amy showing off the sassy front of our Chevy. But knowing that our ride deserved something even sassier, here’s Amy doing her best Vanna.

The North Jersey production with 15 women and men telling their tales was just wonderful and it made me proud to be a part of something that so honors mothers and motherhood. Thank you, Listen To Your Mother creator Ann Imig for your vision and love and thank you, Chevrolet, for giving our show your support and for helping us all to Find New Roads!

You’re a way better Vanna than me. Thanks for road-tripping with me!

Wow, that Chevy really makes your butts look amazing! Or maybe it’s just the magic of New Jersey.

Thank you so much for driving out to see the show!! Felt good having your both there rooting us on.

There is nothing that feels as good as someone giving of their time to support your dreams and efforts. So grateful to @Chevrolet for helping LTYM to make this possible by attending each others’ shows!
