Film & TV

Stagedad Webseries - in this hilarious new series by Anthony Aibel, I play the Academy Award Winning film director, Macy Kain, who has unfortunately signed onto a film project and is overwhelmed by a very pushy stage dad, played by funny man, Anthony Aibel.  I even spray painted my hair to look like I was 69 years old.

One Woman Show - Velvet Determination

A Musical Journey About Wrong Notes, Hard Knocks and the Keys to Success

In this award-winning autobiographical show, Cynthia relates the youthful determination of her younger self as she meets the many idiosyncratic characters who either inspired, helped or hindered her journey.  She thrills her audience with musical impersonations of world-famous classical pianists as

she remembers hearing them at the legendary Carnegie Hall.  AND...she

beautifully demonstrates her own musical sensitivity and formidable

technique performing live classical piano music, featuring Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy and Schubert.
