Additional Info

At long last, the dreaded teen years have been captured with the usual MOM hilarity with MOMologues 3: The Final Push.  Responding to pleas from moms who saw the first two shows, the writers understood that comedy would abound as they experienced their own torment and terror as the moms of teenagers.  From the list of parenting fails to the Seven Dwarves of the puberty years:  Surly, Grumpy, Moody, Sulky, Secretive, Fresh and Spoiled, this play captures the laughs and tears of motherhood again. Four separate characters tell their individual stories, either directly to the audience in monologues, in scenes with each other or in the always popular round robin  of 'Things Moms Say.'
