"Adrienne Visnic and Sandy Bainum…do a splendid and heart-felt job of walking through the minefield that is death, pain, mourning, and adjustment."
"Musical theater triple-threat Bainum does stunning dramatic work too as a grieving mother who finds herself now utterly alone, even as she continues her by-the-rules mourning of Craig’s long-deceased dad."
Stage Scene LA
"Bainum, always a resourceful actress, turns her unlikable mother-in-law into a trusted model of love and friendship."
"Delicately satisfying...[Ms. Brunstetter] writes fresh, unfussy dialogue and characters who earn their laughs and emotional moments by honest means."
– The New York Times
"Be A Good Little Widow is a play filled with emotion, and the entire cast deserves acclaim for their outstanding portrayals."
—Carol Kaufman Segal
Speaking of the Arts
"The most impressive work is done by Bainum, who has admirable stage presence. She manages to lend believability to her character’s unbelievable transition from patronizing bitchiness to aching vulnerability."
