Two-time FringeNYC award-winning writer/performer Cyndi Freeman’s latest solo show, which premiered at the 2011 FRIGID New York Festival, traces her journey from a little suburban Jewish girl obsessed with Wonder Woman to a fabulous burlesque queen in NYC. A veteran storyteller and MothSlam winner, Freeman recounts personal tales of heroics and harrowing adventures while joyfully spewing trivia about America’s first and favorite female super here, Wonder Woman. Join her on a crusade to right wrongs while wearing fabulous outfits, directed by Obie-Award winner David Drake (director of Taylor Mac’s The Lily’s Revenge).
