Los Angeles, CA – October 4, 2023 - Performer, actress, compelling storyteller Sandra Bernhard is taking a stand with Texas and bringing her Sandyland Presents: “Stand With Texas” community gathering shows to Austin, Dallas and Houston this December. All dates are on sale now (see ticket links below).
Be it on-screen (“American Horror Story,” “POSE” - HERE), radio (Sandyland on Sirius XM’s Radio Andy Channel 102) or on stages across the globe, Sandra Bernhard has been one of the most exhilarating performers for the past five decades. Now, she’s ready to share and educate with the great state of Texas on some important issues. To do that, Sandra is joining forces with local Texas organizations (NOISE FOR NOW, Resource Center, politicians, drag artists, musicians and other surprise guests to raise awareness on student education, LGBTQ + and abortion rights to create change and unite.
“I love Texas, I love the culture, the food, the music, the people. So, when I see a government that is crushing their spirit, of course, I want to step up. Sandyland is my little world where everyone is welcomed and included, so I thought, why not come to Texas and give some love to my LGBTQ+ community? Why not fight for the abortion and health care rights of my sisters? Why not lend my voice to the educators who want to give students the vastest experience they can in the classroom? So, I am gathering local voices of the many talented Texans to join me in “Standing Up” and bringing together the people who care and want to make Texas an inclusive, progressive place to live. Join me! I’ll be bringing my free-wheeling show to entertain you along with the Sandyland Squad Band. It’s the perfect time to gather and elevate the conversation!" - says Sandra.
A pioneer of the one-woman show, Sandra’s trailblazing style has won her a loyal following and critical praise as she continues to tackle difficult subjects head on with sincerity and her whip smart insight. You won't want to miss this one-night-only evening of entertainment and enlightenment.
"Bernhard teaches the children – all those burgeoning spoken-word artists and monologists how to perform observational comedy with style, and right on the political edge." - The New Yorker
