Bravo, what a great show!
Loving this review from Zen Ten Baby.
Zen Ten Baby – Facebook blogger dedicated to one womans journey into the wonderful world of motherhood.
“So this morning I was wondering how chickpea was going to sit through a show on motherhood at Rowheath Pavilion. I need not have worried, the show was full of babies and toddlers, at the back of the room was toys and three paid and professional childminders so mums could for once, enjoy some entertainment.
“All in all it was a feel good show, full of laughter, tales, coffee and irony, motherhood cliches are very real so what better way to address them, than humour from a mum who is not only a strong lady but a pioneering mum. Bravo, what a great show!”
Baby Brained The Musical was created by one amazing lady, Rebecca Schwarz. She monologues a tale of motherhood inspired by her own plight, which covers relatable themes to us mums such as anxiety, colonics, midwives, relationships and babygroups. It was hilarious. She makes light of alot of the stuff that myself and mum friends went through, the isolation, shame, pain and ofcourse the outwardly image we seem to portray with smiles and cute baby pictures.
Audience participation was a key part of the musical, chickpea even joined in and ventured to the front to watch. Acacia family support were in attendance which was wonderful to see. Mental health is a touchy subject but one that needs to be spoken about in order to help the many that suffer silently. Rebecca brought tears to my eyes at one point when she mentioned the nightfeeds and sleeplessness that new mums experience, this musical helps us realise we are all in the same boat and we can help each other.
All in all it was a feel good show, full of laughter, tales, coffee and irony, motherhood cliches are very real so what better way to address them, than humour from a mum who is not only a strong lady but a pioneering mum. Bravo, what a great show!”
