MOMs The Word!
"The MOMologues" Opens in Boston

The Stuart Street Playhouse will become home to a flurry of female celebrations when "The MOMologues" opens at the Playhouse's 2nd Stage while "Menopause: The Musical" is playing the theatre's main stage.

An original comedy about motherhood, "The MOMologues" was written by three Boston-area moms and follows four women through the stages of motherhood, from pregnancy, labor and delivery to dealing with picky eaters, the tooth fairy, discipline issues and all the real-life comedy of being a mother.  Performance dates are Tuesday, April 13 through Sunday, May 9.

Conceived in 2000, "The MOMologues"  is the brainchild of Scituate's Lisa Rafferty, who had searched in vain for a play that took an honest but funny look at motherhood.  When her search came up empty, she wrote some material herself, helped by friends, including Concord's Stefanie Cloutier and Sheila Eppolito of Chelmsford.  All of the stories in the show are based on the real-life experiences of the playwrights and other moms.

"The MOMologues" premiered in Boston at the ICA Theatre in May of 2002 with Rafferty directing. The show was an immediate success, prompting a return engagement at the ICA Theatre a  year later.

The show's original performers, including Cloutier, Ellen Stone of Bridgewater, Maria Wardwell of Wellesley, Cinda Donovan of Scituate, Charlotte Dietz and Johanna Perri of Newton and Jane Eyler of Framingham will be featured in a rotating cast along with some new faces for the Stuart Street Playhouse/2nd Stage run. 

Tickets ($38.00 for general admission) are available at the Stuart Street Playhouse Box Office, located at 200 Stuart Street in Boston, or by calling Telecharge at 800-447-7400.  Preferred member tickets are available exclusively through Show of the Month Club, at 617-338-1111.
