Sandy Bainum, Actor-Singer-Dancer
Sandy Bainum is the total modern day performer, an engaging actress who’s equally comfortable with the classics or contemporary fare, and a musical theater professional – the proverbial triple threat – complete with high “Cs” and high kicks. She’s also a chanteuse with great style and sophistication, a beauty with a breezy wit – and a voice that soars. From standards to contemporary hits to special material, she connects with a wide range of musical generations and genres – a truly eclectic and exciting theater and cabaret artist.
Sandy, a classically trained coloratura soprano and dancer, made the leap from small town Pennsylvania to Broadway when she was hired for the chorus of David Merrick’s legendary production of “42nd Street,” first in the National Tour and then on Broadway, in the plum rule of Annie. During a stop at Washington’s National Theatre, Sandy met and ultimately married then Maryland State Senator Stewart Bainum, who brought her to Washington, D.C. and a new phase of her busy career.
She regularly appears in Washington’s top theatrical venues in plays and musicals for which she’s garnered excellent reviews, plus several nominations and awards. Sandy also performs her terrific one-woman cabaret shows in major venues in D.C., New York and Los Angeles.
