“Tales of Modern Motherhood: This Sh*t Just Got Real,” is a heartfelt comedy about the uncertainties of becoming a parent, the FEAR of being a parent, and the reservations of why I didn’t just settle for a dog. It addresses the good, the bad and the ugly truth about what really happens behind closed doors and gives a very honest perspective on the hardest job in the world, PARENTING!!!

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