A Night of Funny Firsts: Evolution of a Kiss
Nice girls don't kiss and tell. So Cynthia tells all! Fresh from sold out houses in the Women on the Way Festival, Cynthia returns in Evolution of a Kiss, a hilarious and sensual one-woman show about hers, her mother's and her grandmother's first kisses.
Cynthia makes her directorial debut with two one-act comedies by Wayne Rawley; performed by Nick Dickson, Matt Gunnison, Tavis Kammet, Maria Leigh, Jason Pienkowski and Holly Silk.
Happiness is Like a Beautiful, Bright, Shiny Red Apple and Controlling Interest are both funny plays on the possibility of liking girls for the first time and painfully awkward first dates.
Footloose Artistic Director, Mary Alice Fry, was so impressed by Cynthia in this year's Women on the Way Festival that she invited her back for these encore performances. Told in painstaking honesty and hilarity, these tales of passion and desire traverse three generations and two countries--Mexico and the United States. Cynthia's solo show is based on first hand accounts of three young women's first kisses. A frequent reader for Get Mortified (where people read from their own ridiculous teen aged journals to sold out audiences), Cynthia was inspired to expose her own story, her mother's and her grandmother's.
