Sandy Bainum Actor, Singer, Dancer

"He Walked Into My Life" from Mame
‘Private’ Short Film that Honors its Noir Roots
“Calloway was hired by a hot woman…scratch that…a beautiful dame (played by Sandy Bainum)…The acting is great from both Steve Blackwood and Sandy Bainum. Its dialogue heavy, and each are up to the challenge, and not afraid to have fun with their parts. Both characters are well-developed. Considering that the movie is only twenty minutes long, it’s a testament to the way they are each played. I liked them both.”
Private (2022) Review
“Private is anchored by two excellent performances that help make their characters more than a stereotypical femme fatal and boozy gumshoe…Sally Danforth (Sandy Bainum, There’s a Special Place in Hell For Fashion Bloggers, Friendly Neighborhood Coven) a chorus girl who married money hired him to find her missing husband.”
Private – Steve Blackwood Productions
“…intrigue and surprises expertly provided by Blackwood and his equally seductive costar, the stunning Sandy Bainum, one of Hollywood’s best-kept secrets.”
“Private” Continues Winning Festival Journey
“Both Blackwood and Bainum are clearly enjoying their work here and they enjoy a terrific chemistry with one another.”
“Stuck” | Short Film Review
“Furthermore, the performances are pitch perfect. Blackwood, Bainum and Schochet are excellent in their respective turns.”
Be a Good Little Widow Review – Is There a Right Way to Grieve?
“Kudos to the ladies in the production – Adrienne Visnic and Sandy Bainum – who do a splendid and heart-felt job of walking through the minefield that is death, pain, mourning, and adjustment.”
BWW Review: MAME is Back and Better
“Leading the musical comedy at Riverside is Sandy Bainum and she is the picture of glamor, grace, charm and offers a vivacious portrayal of everyone’s favorite aunt. Bainum has the elegance, beauty and winning vocal power to enchant the full houses that seem to be the fate of this production. The comic turns are in good hands with Bainum but she handles the music like a Broadway star. Whether she is warbling “Open a New Window” to her new-found nephew or delivering her 11 o’clock number “If He Walked into My Life,” Bainum makes Mame’s songs her own.”
The Sandy Bainum collection “Simply” is – simply – a knockout!
“There is not one track on the album that is not brilliantly sung and perfectly and uniquely arranged. Rodgers & Hart’s “Where or When” is dressed in a great, fresh tempo – delightful. Sandy’s version of “A Cockeyed Optimist makes you long to see her as Nellie Forbush. “Goodnight My Someone” as well, conjuring up a vision of her in a “Music Man” revival. The Helen Reddy 70s hit “You and Me Against the World” is lusciously revived. The Fields and Schwartz classic “Make the Man Love Me” becomes something new thanks to Sandy Bainum’s reading and a sparkling arrangement.”
‘Curtain Up!’ Edelen shines in Signature Theatre production of “Gypsy.”
“But its Sandy Bainum, Donna Migliaccio and Tracy Lynn Olivera as the trio of strippers who long ago should have hung up their G-strings that stop the show with an uproarious rendition of “You Gotta Get a Gimmick.””
