This entry is somewhat of a departure from the Q&A’s with Christian artists that are usually found here.

Moms’ Night Out was just about to wrap up several weeks of shooting in Birmingham, Ala., and several key cast members were made available for interviews to talk about this family comedy slated for 2014 release via Provident Films and Sony Affirm.
