The Black Box Theatre in downtown Moline rolls out the baby carriage for “Motherhood: The Musical,” because having a baby is just the beginning…motherhood is for life. In the original play written by Sue Fabisch, four women share their insights, challenges and pleasures at a baby shower. In 90 minutes of fun, you’ll get a peek into the powerful friendship of Amy, a soon-to-be first-time mom; Brooke, a hard-working lawyer; Barb, a stressed-out mother of five; and Tina, a single mom seeking to balance work, her family and her divorce. Motherhood is a funny, yet loving look at being a mom at any age. It’s climbing the emotional mountain only to find that there’s laundry at the top.

Directed and designed by BBT co-founder David Miller, the cast includes Kristen Sinclair, Shana Kulhavy, Emmalee Hilburn and Lucy Dlarmini.  Choreography by Beth Marsoun. Music direction and keyboards are provided by Randin Letendre, with Peter Letendre on drums and Kyle Jecklin on bass. Baby bump created by Sara Nicole Wegener.
