The Edge of Every Day
Upcoming schedule of Edge of Every Day will be posted soon.
“Her cabaret performance at The Duplex in New York City’s West Village 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
Sacred Stages LLC presents THE EDGE OF EVERYDAY, which explores our fear of change and ultimately, our acceptance of the dichotomies of Life. “The Edge” is where our resistance, our reluctance to embrace the diversity of life, meets 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 Bowie and Clapton to Georgia Stitt and David Cantor, the show is a ritual ride!
“Bargman ….providing some genuine musical thrills.” – Matthew Murray, Talkin’ Broadway
THE EDGE OF EVERYDAY is directed by multi MAC Award and Bistro Backstage Award winner Shawn Moninger. Musical Director, Ian Herman will accompany Sandra at the piano. Kahlil Kwame Bell provides percussion. Sandra and Ian will debut their original tune, “Who’s To Say?” Ian Herman began his musical career studying classical piano. At the age of thirteen he was a guest soloist with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. After attending Manhattan School Of Music, Ian began working with celebrity performers in nightclubs in New York and around the country. In 1999 he received the Backstage Bistro Award for best Musical Director. He was a pianist and vocal coach at the Broadway revival of Grease, working with guest stars such as Al Jarreau, Jon Secada, Sheena Easton, Chubby Checker, and Darlene Love. His other Broadway credits include “Jelly’s Last Jam,” “The Who’s Tommy,” “Song And Dance,” and "Swing," for which he wrote vocal and dance arrangements, and “Laughing Room Only” with Jackie Mason.

"Guess what kind of a show a self-proclaimed “Queen Bee” (Loose translation: cabaret diva) who’s an ordained Interfaith minister with strong, sultry singing does? Barnstorming Bargman pontificates pluckily… it’s food for (deep) thought.”
– Rob Lester, Cabaret Scenes

"Sandra Bargman's Sacred Stages presentation of The Edge of Everyday, was magical and thought provoking. First of all, she is one powerhouse of a performer, even without a message, but she does have a message, and it is so beautifully interwoven with song and entertainment. Her presence is so real, she is so alive. I laughed, I cried, I sang along (or at least clapped along) and thoroughly enjoyed myself, as did the whole audience..."

Of course your voice and style...and beauty...are unique...and infused with your shining spirit, the latter of which put the power to it all.”
