Momma's Day

Hello, darlings. I heart my mommy. For me she's sat through:

Beauty and the Beast
Little Women
Hairspray
Spring Awakening
August: Osage County
Speech and Debate
Phantom
Night Music
Legally Blonde
Hair
Next to Normal
Mary Poppins
In the Heights
Gypsy

I'm sure I'm forgetting some. She loved Hairspray and Spring Awakening, but she hated Speech and Debate and Phantom with a sick and burning passion. She did not fall asleep at Night Music and Hair did not horrify her. I am proud of her.

So. Who's your favorite Broadway mom? I do this every year, and I have a few. In no particular order:

Diana Goodman
Sally Bowles
Jeanie
Barbara Fordham
Stella Kowalski
Madame Armfeldt and Desiree
Dot
Violet Weston
Momma Rose
Big Edie
Claude's mom
Mother
Sarah

It's all so awfully loverly.
