It is nearly impossible, as both a wife and mom, to wrap my head around the shock and betrayal....along with a boatload of other sentiments (and expletives)....that a woman would experience and potentially spew out when her marriage is truly tested due to the unthinkable. Maddie Corman, who wrote and stars ...

THE WHITE DEVIL: Show Review by Debby Gray Bloom


I attend every show prepared to do two things. First, suspend  my disbelief and two, totally enjoy the performance.

ACTUALLY, WE’RE F**KED: Show Review by Robin Gorman Newman

MOM THEATRE BLOGGER: ONE FUNNY MOTHER: Show Review by Robin Gorman Newman


The title of Dena Blizzard's new one woman Off Broadway show should be One HYSTERICAL Mother. Blizzard, a stand up comedian and 40 something New Jersey married mom of three, lets it all hang out, and then some, as she dishes about motherhood, marriage, friendship and more.  I cannot think of ...
