“Cynthia Kaplan is the funniest, funkiest white girl I’ve seen. Cindy of Arc takes you on the hilarious journey (with rockin’ songs) of an unapologetically smart-ass woman.” – Nancy Giles, Emmy- winning contributor, CBS News Sunday Morning

“If you’re lucky, Kaplan will sing and play guitar, and then you’ll laugh until you can’t breathe.”  – Time Out NY

Cindy of Arc

May 2 – 4

Why are there no Jews in Whoville?

What is a scold’s bridle?

What is the song Delta Dawn really about?

Should we rethink Dr. Deborah Birx?

Why is the Holy Ghost a ghost?

In this brand new work of comedy and music, your guide, Cindy of Arc, will answer these and other pressing questions. She will take you through an abridged history of lying in such popular areas as religion, politics, sex, songwriting, Nazis, and, of course, dogs. Think American Utopia but with expletives, a three man backup band all named Mike, no David Byrne, and no Utopia. And no choreographer. And no money. And it’s a comedy. And they wear their shoes. But otherwise, very similar.

“The perfect convergence of rock and roll trop and middle class Jewish psyche…Witty, angry, sparkling…Transcendence happens.” – Bob Garfield, Bully Pulpit

Cindy of Arc is amazing. The band is so hot. You are going to have a ball. Cynthia Kaplan is a genius.” – Comedian Judy Gold

“Ms. Kaplan is epically funny, and hyper-intelligent…The show is filled with politics of the left wing sort, word play, and a world view shaped in equal parts by being a woman and a Jew…Make sure to buy for your friends that might want to go. If your friends don’t then find better friends and go with them.” – Gordon Nash, Folk Music Notebook Radio
