Jen Maren, a performer and voiceover artist, was a junior in 1992 at Red Wing High School, and a budding actress fresh off her triumphant performance as Maria in The Sound Of Music. One spring day, after school, her mother, Margo, ambushed her with the news that Jenny was wanted in New York. A huge opportunity in the Big Apple! Sally Jessy Raphael wanted to fly the two of them to New York to appear as a girl who couldn’t get a date to prom, and her angry mother.
No date to prom. NATIONAL TV! And off they went.
This was the bus of humiliation under which Margo was delighted to toss her first born. It’s a story Jen’s been telling and retelling over the years - in dressing rooms, at parties, in bars - about the lure of unearned fame, the sting of public embarrassment, and her lifelong investigation into the nature of the love she feels for the preposterous human being she was blessed to call mom.
And yes. We have the tape!
Now you can laugh, cringe, and cry with Jen from the comfort of your own home as we adapt this performance to a Live-streaming experience. Following the 60 minute performance you will be welcome to stop over to a Zoom room to "meet us in the lobby" for any questions or just to say hello!
