This week's awesome person comes to us by way of designer Jeff Sugg. Take it away Jeff!
I started working with Cynthia Hopkins in 1997 and as long as I've known her she has been tackling difficult decisions. As an up and coming downtown performer she chose to quit acting for other companies and start making her own shows. When she began making those shows they dealt with outlandish, complex issues: amnesia (Accidental Nostalgia ), her father's illness (The Truth: A Tragedy), and the Big Bang Theory(The Success of Failure: or The Failure of Success:or The Failure of Success). All these topics have been investigated through her uniquely personal voice and chillingly vibrant music. And she's managed to maintain a biting penchant for humor in the midst of the unbelievable mayhem….. I mean post-human earthlings evolved from pigs; that's funny.
