An experiential performance, The Edge of Everyday is a modern mash-up of cabaret, ritual, and performance art. Sandra explores the seeming paradoxes of life, our fear of change and ultimately, our acceptance of these dichotomies. “The Edge” is where our resistance, our reluctance to embrace the diversity of life, collides with the inevitability of change in all the corners of our lives. Sandra considers the tension between these seeming paradoxes with poignancy and comedy, and with music ranging from David Bowie and Eric Clapton to Georgia Stitt and David Cantor, the show is a rowdy ride! Sandra received a Broadway World nomination for this show in 2015.
“Every once in a glorious while, a cabaret entertainer comes along that makes the spectator gasp. So it goes with Sandra Bargman. A mix of cabaret, performance art, and Universalist revival meeting… absolutely heaven-sent!”
- Andrew Martin, Cabaret Exchange
“Her cabaret performance is not only dynamic but powerfully spiritual. The talented Bargman expresses an eclectic spirituality not a specific ideology. She combines a contemporary vibe with a depth and wisdom moving vertically rather than horizontally through her clever performance. Bargman is an oversized sunflower with a distinctive voice.”
- Karen Feld, Pushing The Edges on Political Mavens
“Sandra Bargman advanced through the audience channeling her inner Sophie Tucker, filling the room with her charisma. She managed to translate her zeal into a fascinating evening of song. “
- Joel Benjamin, Theater Pizzazz
“Bargman ….providing some genuine musical thrills.”
- Matthew Murray, Talkin’ Broadway
“A very different kind of cabaret show…her voice has great power, most commanding on her golden alto notes. Memorable”
