Mom! is back by popular demand, just in time for Mother's Day! Join us for a new, expanded version of this original musical that celebrates the twists and turns, delights and dilemmas, rewards and regrets of parenting. From trying to reason with a toddler having a tantrum to panicking at the prospect of a parent-teacher conference; from staving off unwanted child-rearing advice to struggling to accept the choices of grown children; from trying to rekindle marital passion to trying to shield kids from the heartbreak of divorce, this musical celebrates the humor and the terror of parenting.

Ah, the joys of summer: Warm breezes, the beach, playing charades with the roommate who just might be a serial killer... and the crazy landlady who invites a seedy stranger over for dinner... not to mention the mysterious laughing voices in the ceiling! What twist of fate brought a nice girl like Betty into this house full of insanity? Is it all uproariously funny or unbearably horrible? You decide!
