Ms. Brinkman's performance was mezmerizing and enchanting. From the streets of Puebla Mexico to San Diego, I was completely engaged in the story ... And when she Pulls the audience in, you're hooked into these biopic tales or each first kiss. With a Spanish language infusion and detailed translations, you are captivated by each woman's memory, taking you back to your first kiss. Cynthia captured my heart and held it through the entire show. And her comedic timing ... Let's just say that I thought I was watching a Mexican Kristen Wiig performing. Lorne Michaels need not look too far to replace Wiig when she departs SNL. Cynthia is ready to take her place.... full review

Cynthia is a joy to watch from start to finish! She charms you completely. I left the theatre feeling as though I had just had a particularly enjoyable and entertaining heart to heart with an old friend. ... full review
Evolution is a beautiful story told by a great storyteller.

Evolution of a Kiss was written, performed, and directed beautifully. The level of this one woman show really impressed me. Cynthia's character work was fantastic. Her work was very specific and made each character pop to life. She was adorable, funny, and witty. This show is absolutely relatable, I am pretty sure she made the entire audience blush at her preview. I think one thing that really sets this show aside was the fantastic collaboration with her director. This shows direction was very clear and specific, and the same goes for the arch of the show. You really felt like each woman Cynthia portrayed was your new best friend. How could you not fall in love with each one? I would recommend this show for sure.... full review
