Motherhood the Musical® is produced by the Tony Award winning GFOUR Productions, the team who successfully brought Menopause The Musical® to every major market in the United States.

Hailed as "Engaging, hilarious, and touching!" by Variety, Motherhood the Musical® is written by author and songwriter Sue Fabisch. The 20-song musical includes the hilarious Billboard Top 10 comedy hit song, "The Kids Are Finally Asleep;" the rousing call-to-shoppers, "Costco Queen;" the ode to formerly firm breasts, "How Great They Were;" and the tender ballad, "I'm Danny's Mom." Motherhood the Musical® shares the humorous and loving journey of Amy, a soon-to-be first-time mom; Barb, an over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five; Brooke, a lawyer who works too much and barely sees her kids; and Tasha, a single mom struggling to balance work, family and a divorce.
