'One of downtown's coolest actors... If you're lucky, Kaplan will sing and play guitar, and then you'll laugh until you can't breathe.' ?-Time Out New York FANGRY is here! The long-awaited new album from author and comedian Cynthia Kaplan's band, The Cynthia Kaplan Ordeal, has finally arrived complete with all of Kaplan's best-loved comedy rock songs as well as some all new, never before heard headbangers and power ballads. Kaplan had a peripatetic childhood, traveling the world as the infant muse of the band The Moody Blues. She eventually settled in suburban Connecticut, where she lived with a family called Kaplan and went to junior high school. There she played field hockey and performed in a production of "Finian's Rainbow." During summers, while the Kaplans thought she was at an exclusive summer camp for Jewish girls, she reunited with the band and continued to develop both personally and professionally. It was during one of these summers that her relationship with Justin Hayward turned romantic and she began to write poetry and learned to play the guitar. Before long, she composed her first two songs, "Lovely to See You Again" and "Tuesday Afternoon." Back in Connecticut, Kaplan attended high school. She made the varsity field hockey team. After that, she attended university and drama school, and wrote two books, Why I'm Like This and Leave the Building Quickly. She also bore seven children for the Moody Blues, one per plus two extra, after which she came back to the U.S. and started her band.
