ynthia Farrell has been a musical theater singer and recording artist all of her life.   She has been performing off-Broadway since coming to New York to receive her BFA from NYU’s musical theater department.  She has also created an award-winning career in audiobook narration, commercial voiceover and video game voiceover- she has developed a fan base for playing “Catalina” in the Grand Theft Auto game series.  In her audiobook narration, she is known for her portrayal of strong female characters, and uses an always engaged, uniquely human delivery of language that is enhanced by her clear, strong, mellifluous singer’s tone and diction. Her voice work is in both English and Spanish, as she grew up speaking both languages- it has given her a unique niche as she doesn’t have an accent in either language. Cynthia has a large body of audiobook work ranging: Romance, Fantasy, Science-Fiction, Young Adult, Motivational & general non-fiction, and Crime drama.  In addition to narrating for retail publishers and producers, she has recorded over 150 books for The Library of Congress, not listed here.

MEMORY AND OBLIVION

Cynthia Farrell is an excellent choice of narrator to bring us the frustrations of Carlota Molina, a high-ranking judge and estranged daughter living in Madrid. When a late-night phone call brings Carlota to her father’s deathbed, she struggles against long-forgotten memories and deeply buried anger. Farrell’s lightly accented English evokes the story’s setting and characters…

Upcoming Shows

PRISM

Thursday, October 18th, 2018 | 7:00 PM
Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 | 7:00 PM

The Triad
158 West 72nd Street
New York, NY 10024

This show is Cynthia Farrell’s fourth cabaret show, this time produced by accomplished songwriter and cabaret scene player Tom Toce.  Prisms is about the way the days and events of our lives are truly seen by the perspectives we have at any given moment.  Which color of the prism we chose to look through at any given time, dictates the “color”, or way in which we approach any situation, relationship, or emotion.
In essence, life is about perspective really, much less about actual fact or incident- in our view.  The songs in the show represent varying perspectives of life and relationship when viewed through a particular prism- there are different ages among us collaborators in our show- a prism is created there.  There are many life events in Cynthia’s life, that lead to her view today, tomorrow, five minutes from now, that when viewed through another part of her “prism” will look and feel differently.  
The show will paint pictures that we can all identify with, some fictional, some non-fiction from Cynthia and Tom’s lives, that take the audience on an exciting, profound sometimes funny ride that leave people wondering about fact and fiction and perspective, we hope, in their own lives.

Material ranges from stunning songs written by Tom, some recorded by iconic singers in the cabaret and theater world, to 60’s folk pop, theater songs, 80’s pop, and even a latin number.  Fernanda Douglas will be the musical director and pianist and virtuoso Sean Harkness joins on guitar bringing the show to a dynamic level that is unmatched. 
As a recording artist Cynthia is working on an original music album and is represented by Glen Parrish, at Azoff, Geary, Paul, Smith Management in L.A.
