Cyndi’s taking a bit of a break from blogging here to do something a lot more intense, personal, gratifying and fantastic.

It will be presented as part Frigid New York 2011- February 23-March 6 – learn more at
You can see the show yourself at The Red Room (85 East 4th Street between 2nd Ave and Bowery)
Wed Feb 23rd – 8:00 PM
Sat Feb 26th – 9:30 PM
Tue Mar 1st – 8:00 PM
