“In Mother Words” of Wisdom by Pam Levin

“Tales of Modern Motherhood” This Sh*t Just Got Real, written and performed by Pam Levin, played to a sold out crowd and standing ovation at the Whitefire Theatre, Wednesday Sept. 13th.  This one woman show is witty, entertaining, poignant, real, raw, all in one; in short, it’s everything fine theatre should be.  The Whitefire solo shows yet again never cease to amaze me, delivering material, both edgy and honest, the quality of HBO’s finest.  This show is ninety minutes of Pam Levin pouring her heart and soul, in both humorous vignettes and musical numbers, all the while, exploring the underlying theme of motherhood, in all its glory, sometimes gory, trials and tribulations.  Mothers are sustainers, the life force, as it were, each one filled with her own unique story and ‘take’ on the maternal experience, both ‘joys and oys.’ Pam’s words, all of which are autobiographical from her own life’s journey, from marriage to motherhood, elicit tears of joy amidst stories of struggle and angst. One (of her many) humorous personal vignette revolves around her first learning of her pregnancy and testing it with both generic and name brand pregnancy tests just to ensure its validity.  Each and every story is told with heartfelt delivery (no pun intended), rendering life lessons and beautiful values.  Pam Levin is a veteran of the one woman show genre, and Tales of Modern Motherhood will make its East Coast Premiere off-Broadway at the United Solo Festival in New York City, October 2, 2017. With her strong, fierce persona, Levin has the confidence and wherewithal to carry her show solo, and captivate the audience in its entirety.  Following the huge success of performing “In My Own X-Rated Words, written by Fredrica Duke, Pam Levin is a force to be reckoned with, leaving a legacy, sure to resonate and ring true with all the women (and men in their lives).
