A fun musical with the right mix of cast and music. It gave a humorous and bittersweet outlook on impending motherhood and raising children. I recommend this for both Fathers and Mothers! Kudos to the Society Hill Playhouse for this performance.

The four female performers are talented, full of gusto and compliment each other. The show is funny, great songs and brings back memories of the good, bad and ugly. Audience was mainly women and the few men in attendance were heard laughing. Show...continued

“Sue Fabisch pushed the diaper-stuffed envelope with her hilarious show, Motherhood the Musical_. Rather than resting her laurels on the usual mommy experience to get a laugh, the Nashville-based songwriter put some muscle into this baby.” —_Tampa Tribune
Check out the great Goldstar member reviews this play received in Philadelphia.


A baby is just the beginning. Motherhood is for life…

It’s the joyous journey and loving look at the blessings and perils of being a mom. It’s climbing the emotional mountain only to find that there’s laundry at the top. It’s discovering how powerful your love can be and how quickly your children grow up. It’s helping them find their way and not losing yours. It’s about laughing and crying, craziness and calm, smiles and tears…and all before breakfast.

This hysterical and poignant four-woman musical is a must see for anyone who is, has, or knows a mom. It will remind you that it’s not just about motherhood … it’s about you.
