Centennial, Colo. – NCM Fathom is partnering with Take On The Day LLC and HarperCollins Publishers to bring Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the No. 1 most-listened-to female radio talk show host in America, to more than 450 movie theaters nationwide. Dr. Laura Live! In Praise of Mom takes a poignant look at mothers in this inspiring event presented LIVE on Tuesday, May 5th, and broadcast from the Irvine Barclay Theatre on the University of California, Irvine campus.
Dr. Laura Live! In Praise of Mom comes to the big screen LIVE on Tuesday, May 5th followed by a taped encore on Wednesday, May 6th at 8:00 pm ET / 7:00 pm CT / 6:00 pm MT and 7:30 pm PT (tape delayed).

Dr. Laura Schlessinger invites moms and their families to celebrate Mother’s Day and join her in a special tribute to the women who receive little recognition for their devotion to motherhood. Known for her no-nonsense advice on the popular internationally-syndicated radio program, Dr. Laura will recount her own life as a career woman turned stay-at-home mom showing her journey from mis-conception to conception and from birth to the joys and struggles of parenting during this live stage show.
“After my difficult delivery,” says Dr. Laura, “ending up with an emergency C-section (and then there were all those teenage years!), I thought I’d never want to relive any of that! However, in retrospect, it was all part of the most wondrous experience of my life: being a mommy. I can’t wait to relive it all with you as we celebrate BEING A MOMMY!”
Dr. Laura Live! In Praise of Mom is adapted from Dr. Laura’s newest book, “In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms,” available on April 7th from HarperCollins. The live show will feature audio and video vignettes about moms from sons, daughters, grandparents, dads and moms; and in addition, Dr. Laura will answer questions from audience members live at the Irvine Barclay Theatre.
“Dr. Laura, America’s top female radio talk show host, will be at her multi-media best during this timely and uplifting in-theater event celebrating moms across the country,” said Dan Diamond, vice president of Fathom. “This is a must-see for anyone who wants to honor their mother this Mother’s Day.”
Dr. Laura Live! In Praise of Mom will be shown in select movie theatres including AMC Entertainment Inc., Celebration! Cinema, Cinemark USA Inc., Clearview Cinemas, Cobb Theatres, Goodrich Quality Theaters, Hollywood Theaters, Kerasotes Showplace Theatres, Marcus Theatres, National Amusements and Regal Entertainment Group movie theaters, as well as Palace Cinema 9 (South Burlington, VT) and Penn Cinema (Lititz, PA) through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.
With a broadcast career spanning more than 30 years, Dr. Laura continues to dispense her no-nonsense advice to millions of listeners each week on more than 250 radio stations nationwide. She is the author of 10 New York Times best-selling books and four children’s books.
