"Expressing Motherhood," the touring stage show created by moms Lindsay Kavet and Jessica Cribbs that tackles the hilarious and heartbreaking moments of parenthood, opened strong during its Southern California performance at the Moss Theater in Santa Monica on May 3.
Wendy Hammers, an actress and writer, kicked off the night with an excerpt from her solo play, "Ripe." Alternatively funny and sobering, Hammers explored everything from attracting the wrong guy to single motherhood to cancer.
