TALES OF MODERN MOTHERHOOD: THIS SH*T JUSF GOT REAL is Pam Levin’s brutally funny comedy about the FEAR of becoming a parent, and why she seriously considered just settling for a dog. To birth or not to birth, that is the question, but what if, “to NOT” is a deal breaker? Pam had managed to convince her husband Brett to postpone parenting for 5 years, but now time’s up and her husband’s biological clock is ticking. But Pam has a different strategy…SPERM ASSASINATION!!! Tales of Modern Motherhood addresses the good, bad and ugly truth of what happens behind closed doors and gives a very honest perspective on the hardest job in the world, PARENTING!

Thrilled to be BACK at the Whitefire Theater in LOS ANGELES. This show has been such a phenomenal whirlwind of a ride…

TALES OF MODERN MOTHERHOOD was just in Philadelphia. Love the city of Brotherly Love! The show was asked to HEADLINE this year’s Whitefire Annual SOLO FEST, where we COMPLETED a 6-week run in January/February. This is the largest one-person show festival on the West Coast. It truly was an INCREDIBLE experience! Before that, we were OFF-BROADWAY, for the East Coast Premiere at the United Solo Festival in New York City, which was coming off of a SOLD-OUT run at the Santa Monica Playhouse in Los Angeles

“However, you do NOT have to be a parent to appreciate the show. Some of my most memorable and meaningful compliments have been from men without children…interesting! That deeply touches me!” – Pam Levin

WORDS FROM CRITICS

“This show is funny, touching, fearless and very cleverly constructed. One story flows into another as we wend our way through Pam’s colorful existence. She teases out each laugh and tear from the audience with the cunning that only a mother would have.”

– Excerpt, Review by Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros, May 17th, 2018

“I saw Pam Levin’s show tonight – This is by far one of the best shows I’ve seen in years. Anyone in the Los Angeles area, it’s a MUST SEE! Remarkably honest and rare. Emotionally charged and side splitting. A beautifully crafted love story, masterfully told.”

– Jarret Wright (Actor/Writer/Producer)

“This one woman show is witty, entertaining, poignant, real, raw, all in one; in short, it’s everything fine theatre should be.”

– Excerpt, Review by Bonnie Priever, September 16th, 2017

“Santa Monica Playhouse presents a tale of modern motherhood written and performed by actress and singer Pam Levin and directed by Mark Hatfield.

Tales of Modern Motherhood: This Sh*t Just Got Real is a funny and endearing autobiographical comedy of Levin’s reluctant journey towards motherhood. Drawing from her early years and happy single life to marrying the man of her dreams, Levin fearlessly shares her struggles and experiences with avoiding yet eventually embracing motherhood.

With hilarious and absurd bodily function stories, to dancing and singing with the expertise of a Broadway star, Levin delights the audience with stories mothers all over the world can relate to.

Levin not only delivers story and song with passionate energy and rhythmic might, she brings up questions women are not supposed to ask and gives the audience permission to laugh over the pressure of becoming a parent and the absurdities of parenthood.

This reviewer was touched by the open-hearted and grateful way she described the man who would later become the father of her children.

With the help of two screens to show clips and pictures of Levin’s life, the set is elegantly lit and decorated with the feeling of ‘this sh*t is about to get real.'”

Pam Levin and her cast mates were just awarded, “BEST ENSEMBLE” for the short film, “Sisters,” inspired by the Samuel Beckett piece, “Come and Go,” at the Culver City Film Festival in California. Pam is super excited about booking a McDonald’s voice-over spot for McCafe, which is currently playing. She is also in Terrie Silverman’s Master Solo class making her final tweaks on the one-woman show, “Tales of Modern Motherhood.” Thrilled to be back at the Santa Monica Playhouse with Fredrica Duke’s hilarious play, “In My Own X-Rated Words.” She’s had the pleasure of performing it off and on, for the last two ½ years, as well as Off –Broadway for three performances at the United Solo Festival. Most recently you can watch her on Netflix in the Independent Feature, “Meet My Valentine” and in the feature film, “Do you Believe.” Every now and again, Pam plays a recurring nurse on the Soap Opera, “Day’s of our Lives.” As mentioned, Pam is also a voice-over talent. She has narrated over a dozen children’s audio books on the website, babysbrilliant.com.
