Perfectly Norma Productions Presents "Suddenly Mommy!" May 16-22, 2011Monday, May 16, 2011
This week, Anne Marie Scheffler will be performing her 7th one person show, Suddenly Mommy! Canadian Comedy Award nominee, Second City Alumnae and star of her own comedy special on CTV and The Comedy Network, Scheffler first performed the show on Mother’s Day to a nearly sold-out crowd. Perfectly Norma Productions has now secured a week run of Suddenly Mommy! at The Theatre Centre in Toronto from May 16-22, 2011.
Written and performed by Anne Marie Scheffler and directed by Debbie Tidy, the stage production focuses on a woman who becomes a mom, a step-mom and wife because she wasn't getting any younger and didn't want to "miss out." What she discovers is that motherhood isn't so glamorous.
Anne Marie Scheffler didn't think motherhood would be this hard. She thought she could be the sexy showbiz mom, with a baby in one arm and a movie script in the other. Her jarring realization otherwise makes for a humorous and entertaining show. Scheffler is a charismatic, sparkling performer. - CBC Review
I have been invited to attend the show and look forward to watching the Toronto-based actress and playwright live on stage tomorrow night. I'll be bringing my dear blogging friend Mom2Michael for a good laugh. And you can join us, too. Tickets can be purchased for $20 in advance from www.suddenlymommy.com and $25 at the door.
Disclosure: I have been offered a pair of complimentary tickets to attend the show in order to provide a review.
