The Power of Charisma in Theatre

“What’s outstanding about this production is, well, everything –– acting, singing, dancing, staging, sets, lights, costumes. Directed by Brett Smock, this show is Broadway-worthy. Sandy Bainum’s French mother is self-absorbed, finally less influential than the men in young Frank’s life.”

That Sixties Show: The Rev’s retro musical ‘Catch Me If You Can’ is an irresistible scam

“Other laudable work is done by Sandy Bainum in the dual roles of Frank’s mother and Brenda’s mother, and Jesse Sharp, most notably as Brenda’s father Roger Strong.”

Private: Out of the Shadows

“What starts as a seemingly generic detective piece, intensifies into a tangled battle of morals. In a low budget drama that largely takes place in a single room, the performances must carry the story; and both Blackwood and Bainum deliver on all counts. “

BWW Review: MAMMA MIA! at 5-Star Theatricals

“Sandy Bainum plays the promiscuous cougar Tanya to the hilt and does a nice job on “Does Your Mother Know,” her condescending anti-vamp solo sung to rebuff Pepper (Christopher Jewell Valentin), a cabana boy-on-the-make who is no match for her wiles.”

—Cary Ginell,BROADWAY WORLD

5-Star Theatricals Triumphantly Returns with an Enlivening ‘Mamma Mia!’

“Sandy Bainum and Lisa Dyson are exemplary casting personified. Bainum is commanding in her blue bikini and chiffon neon cover-up, as she teases and pushes Christopher Jewell Valentin’s Pepper (one of the hotel staff members along with Eddie, played by Anthony Broccoli) during “Does Your Mother Know.””
