ABOUT THE SHOW
Our 5-year-old daughter plays with boys, dresses like a boy, and has even said that she wants to be a boy. This show is a sequel to the smash-hit comedy focusing on the lunacy, fear, labeling and unconditional love of parenting. Just like in the original… this sh*t just got real!

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.”
“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.”
“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.'”
“I absolutely loved this show. If you happen to have the opportunity to catch Pam Levin and her “Tales of Modern Motherhood” then treat yourself, this show is too wonderful to pass up.”
About the Artist

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.
