About A Mother's Love:
A Mother's Love is a story that captures the roller coaster relationship between a mother and daughter. It depicts how tough it can be for a mother to let go and allow her daughter to make her own decisions when it comes to love. The story, which plays out over a week's time, chronicles the daughter's girl group as they prepare for a life changing performance. Will the mother finally respect her daughter's wishes to make her own decisions? Will the daughter choose to love the DREAMER, a man with potential who loves her and is working towards his dreams, or the PROVIDER, a man who in the eyes of her mother has accomplished his dreams and arrived. Will the mother be successful in pushing her into the arms of another man? Torn between accepting the life her daughter wants and forcing the life she thinks her daughter should have, this is A Mother' s Love. The original musical stars Kandi, Eddie Levert of the OJays, Shirley Murdock, Q Parker of 112, D. Woods of Danity Kane, Real Housewives cast mate, Porsha Stewart, and more.
