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.”

What A Treat, The Current Norris Theatre’s 42nd St. Revival!

“Another standout performance is by Sandy Bainum, playing the leading lady, Dorothy Brock, in a well-measured balance of Broadway Diva and Older and Wiser Veteran Star passing the baton along to the up and coming. BWW Review: WHAT A TREAT, THE CURRENT NORRIS THEATRE’S 42ND STREET REVIVAL!Ms. Bainum was in the original David Merrick production, as Anytime Annie, and proves she is well-rounded and versatile and has had a long-lasting career.”

INSIDE OUT Rocks the Grove Theater Center

“Celebrating its 20th anniversary the little musical “Inside Out” by Doug Haverty and Adryan Russ throws a boldly bright spotlight on the positive loving effects of group therapy. Based on the actual accounts of women who joined a group in the early 90s, “Inside Out” shares their stories…and the music is not only part of the plot, as pop singer Dena (Leslie Stevens) agonizes over the challenges of making a comeback, but more urgently becomes the almost guaranteed therapeutic force of nature for the entire piece. Six outstanding singers/actresses under the uber skilled direction of Bruce Kimmel dispense advice and sing and move with electrifying verve.”
