The story of Motherhood, the Musical
The birth of a child is just the first ordeal… Motherhood lasts a lifetime.
Sue Fabisch’s legendary musical, which was a worldwide hit, is finally available for Hungarian audiences.
Heavily pregnant Amy is throwing a baby shower. Her guests are Barbara, an over-emotional full-time housewife, Brooke, a workaholic, constantly stressed lawyer, and Tina, a divorced single mother with compliance compulsion issues, to provide good advice to the pregnant host, whose ideas about motherhood are very naive.
But that is soon to change, thanks to her three guests.
Motherhood, the Musical is an honest and incredibly funny look at what it means to be a parent. Whether you are a black-belt mother or a young new mother, this 90-minute-long musical comedy is guaranteed to make you feel better.
What more could a mother wish for?
The English language original has been played in sold-out venues for ten years without a break on four continents. Liliom Productions is finally introducing the worldwide musical to Hungarian audiences. Enjoy every minute of this exhilarating emotional rollercoaster!
The performance includes familiar tunes from other famous musicals, for all to enjoy.
