Adam Chester and Eve Nelson are turning S'Mother, the hilarious autobiographical book by Adam Chester (based on the thousands of insanely inappropriate letters from his mother) into an original, funny musical for the stage (that is approved by Adam's Mother.) 

And YOU can help!  

Yes, Adam's Mother, the woman who wrote over one thousand crazy, wacky, WTF letters to her son, is being put to music!

It's original.  It's relatable.  It's based on the very funny, best-selling book that's 100% true! Yes, be thankful it's not YOUR Mom. (Or your son!) 

The show combines the talents of author, Adam Chester, an accomplished singer/songwriter who works as the Surrogate Elton John for the Elton John Band, and his high school pal, Eve Nelson, musician/producer for everyone from Chaka Khan to Sandra Bernhard.  They've already written three fantastically catchy songs for the show and need YOUR help to raise funds and make some contacts to bring this idea from the page to the stage!

As Adam's Mother recently wrote to Adam, "So you turned all of my personal letters to you into a book, and now you want to take it to Broadway?  Look, as long as it makes you happy?  I don't care.  Just be careful when you meet Neil Patrick Harris.  He likes men.  Love, Mom"

Risks and challenges

Finding the right playwright and producer for this project, along with securing enough initial capital to finish recording the songs Adam and Eve have written thus far, and have enough left over to book a space to present what they have to backers, is what S'Mother the Musical needs. While Adam and Eve have the passion, creativity and commitment to get S'Mother off the ground, they need your help! Come on! Make a S'Mother proud! Thank you!
