"Cynthia’s attention to detail helped me better create characters. With her ear and coaching I'm able to find, the dialect oral posture, breath, operative words, rhythm and phrasing. Cynthia helped me craft my text so that my intention and meaning is in the foreground and the dialect is an asset to the story telling, not merely an actor speaking in a dialect."
