Tales of Modern Motherhood: This Sh*t Just Got Real is a brutally funny comedy about the uncertainties of becoming a parent, the FEAR of being a parent, and the reservations of why she didn't just settle for a dog. It addresses the good, the bad and the ugly truth about what really happens behind closed doors and gives a very honest perspective on the hardest job in the world, PARENTING! Director, Mark Hatfield said Levin's show is “like lassoing a tornado, wrestling an octopus and juggling chainsaws...then she whiplashes you with tender moments that will melt your heart...” ​"​This one woman show is witty, entertaining, poignant, real, raw, all in one; in short, it's everything fine theatre should be.​"​ - Curtain Up (Bonnie Priever) Pam Levin is a veteran in the one-woman show genre.

Reviews

With hilarious and absurd bodily function stories, to dancing and singing with the expertise of a Broadway star, Levin delights the audience with stories mothers all over the world can relate to.

Levin not only delivers story and song with passionate energy and rhythmic might, she brings up questions women are not supposed to ask and gives the audience permission to laugh over the pressure of becoming a parent and the absurdities of parenthood.

Pam’s words, all of which are autobiographical from her own life’s journey, from marriage to motherhood, elicit tears of joy amidst stories of struggle and angst. One (of her many) humorous personal vignette revolves around her first learning of her pregnancy and testing it with both generic and name brand pregnancy tests just to ensure its validity.  Each and every story is told with heartfelt delivery (no pun intended), rendering life lessons and beautiful values.

Levin is certainly a likable person, charming and earnest. Her most engaging moments happen when she addresses the audience directly. It's difficult to tell why she's relating this particular story, however; there's nothing fresh or new about her narrative.
