YOU & I: Cindy Firing Pays Tribute to Barbara Cook
"… with a program that paid tribute to one of the queens of cabaret, Miss Barbara Cook, she proved herself a worthy successor as both singer and actress and as a fine storyteller. …the show (has) a mix of humor and reverence ...impressive vocal range … Firing was absolutely fearless."
-Bart Greenberg, Cabaret Scenes

"thrilling treat of a NYC debut … Firing is incredibly likeable, with a superb voice and tremendous stage presence ... captivating combination of honesty and humor … Barbara would’ve approved! … a marvelous show. … Firing a genuine talent … Cindy Firing is a star"
-Michael Barbieri, NiteLife Exchange

"equally possessing voice and virtue (Cindy & Josephine) complemented each other in style and phrasing, reminiscent of a legendary, albeit fictional, pairing of Julie Andrews and Barbra Streisand ... madcap humor and fun for the whole audience ... both very funny, and particularly well sung, a combination not often seen on stage these days"
- David Sabella, Cabaret Hotspot

"wonderful chemistry and just plan fun ... a hit in the Big Apple and the Windy City for good reason ... harmonies executed by these mellifluous voices was thrilling and combined into a single, superb amalgamate ... seasoned talents capable of a range of styles, moods and emotions ... a delightful, joyous affirmation of constructing an entertainment full of variety, fun narrative and sheer musical talent"
- Marilyn Lester, NiteLife Exchange

"Making her Davenport’s debut, Cindy Firing brought impressive vocals, megawatt energy, and heart to Brass Ring."

Hailed as “absolutely fearless,” Cindy Firing has been busy performing her two newest cabaret shows with her powerhouse artistic team – Music Director John Cook and Director Marshall Mays. Her celebrated solo show titled "You & I, Cindy Firing pays tribute to Barbara Cook" received rave reviews from the Big Apple to the Windy City claiming “Barbara would’ve approved.” While “Carry On!”, her first collaboration with duet partner Josephine Sanges, is “reminiscent of a legendary, albeit fictional, pairing of Julie Andrews and Barbra Streisand” providing “mad cap humor and fun for the whole audience.” Together they explore myriad ways one carries on whether traveling light, making merry or feeling wary.

Cindy's first solo cabaret “Brass Ring” enjoyed successful runs in Chicago at Davenport’s and in Philadelphia at Dino’s Backstage. She has also appeared at the Victory Garden’s Theatre, Park West, Drew’s on Halsted, Theatre 773, as well as Jazz at the Bistro and KDHX Stage in St. Louis. 

Cindy also created “Hush” - a cabaret series dedicated to creating intimate evenings showcasing everything from abridged operas to Great American Songbook revues. Critics agree it is nothing to keep quiet about!

A graduate of Pennsylvania State University’s theatre department, she honed her stage skills in Off-Off Broadway and opera houses before succumbing to the seduction of cabaret. She is a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Association, the Chicago Cabaret Professionals and the Manhattan Association of Cabarets.
