BROKEN MOTHERHOOD MUSEUM is a play like no other. A poetic immersive theatre play written and directed by Miriam Tabb. Our current run is set in a real beauty salon that transforms our shamefully buried motherhood stories into a base of empowerment to fly from. You get to witness and even join in the transformation.

My baby is two months old and already the sexism that surrounds parenting is overwhelming

Celebrating the dads who step up as they should, and opening our eyes to underlying norms that guide them to do the opposite. Great read.

"He's a very hands on dad," observed a middle aged woman in a pub where we were having dinner, "It's so lovely to see." We smiled politely as she cooed over our son and my husband, who had picked up four-week-old Freddie to comfort his crying as I tucked into my food. But really I should have correc...

Yes we can have the motherhood experiences we want! Love this!

"I would like to share my photo on your page of me breastfeeding my son on my wedding day. This picture is very important to me because at the age of 22 so many people doubted me and said I would give up on breastfeeding and here I am 4 months later and still going strong. I enjoy nursing my son and I made sure when I chose my wedding dress I would be able to nurse throughout my entire night. And I was able to. So I just want to share with women that no matter who doubts you or who turns their noses up to breastfeeding that it can be done. No one should make them feel embarrassed about feeding their child in the most natural way. #bwdbf #wedothis

Here is a rehearsal clip of a new project by Miriam Tabb, writer and director of broken motherhood museum. This scene was completely improvised and is a conversation most of us have had or imagined. Please watch, and if you like it, share it! :-)

Here's another gem that we recorded during rehearsal. Believe it or not the main goal here was to get comfortable with the camera turned on and in our personal space. It's the first time we turned on the camera! Unbelievable. Watch, like and share! :-)

Oh my God! I finally breathed! broken motherhood museum just had the ultimate 'show must go on' experience and ROCKED IT! I love these actresses who know the piece so well we could switch to a completely different alternate space and Give Their All to give the people the transformation they came for. Amazing. No words. Love.

I am not giving away the ending when I tell you broken motherhood museum ended with a hug the whole audience could participate in. In honor of the men and women who gave their lives for peace not war, I humbly request you give joyful hugs to those you love, like, don't know and maybe even think you hate. Connected, heart-to-heart, joyful hugs. Please tell me how many you gave and any significant experiences. Much love.

“I like the show experience,” says ensemble member Norma Hernandez. “Every time I do the show I find something new about the production, and I have a feeling the audience feels the same way when they enter the museum.

“The show does change every night in a visible and tangible way. The audience flows in different directions and has different reactions to what is going on. I wonder how the audience feels about the personal nature of the piece. Are they scared? Put off? Excited? Emotional?”

Experience the broken motherhood museum experience for yourself!

Comments from our supporters -- "If ur in Harlem check it out on its last Day. I'm upset it is closing before I make it back to Ny but would love to support something like this, esp since someone from the block is involved."
