Man Of La Mancha- The Princeton Festival


Sandra Marante brings an exquisite soprano voice to Aldonza, as well as a fiery temper that masks the character's pain...her character undergoes the most dramatic change. Marante depicts Aldonza character arc with finesse"- Town Topics, New Jersey 2017

"Malgieri and Marante started with their first notes, with their voices transcending the space. With a bitter glint in her eye, Marante persuades us of her cynical acceptance of a degrading life and of what she learns from Quixote"- Philly Inquirer 2017

"Marante's lustrous soprano elevates her numbers, especially her well acted Aldonza, and helps to create a full and wonderful sound when she sings in ensemble" 2017

"Sandra Marante is a strong Aldonza/Dulcinea/ This role can be challenging and Marante's powerful performance takes us through the wild and abrasive side of Aldonza to Dulcinea.. Her soprano voice is rich and she will captivate you" Princeton Found 2017

"Marante is a standout as Aldonza.. you sense the character's humanity, her grappling with her well- earned cynicism" 2017

"Ms. Marante brought a wonderfully powerful singing voice to the role along with first class acting ability. This is not an easy role to make believable, yet Ms.Marante succeeded in doing so brilliantly"- Out in Jersey 2017

Tickling the Ivories - Stage Door Theater

"One of the hits with vocalist Sandra Marante was her comedic number "Who'll buy" from the 1949 "Lost in the Stars" which left the audience members booming with laughter" 2017


 Sandra Marante’s take on Alicia Key’s Fallin’ , which seamlessly segues into Nina Simone’s soulful ‘Feelin’ Good is definitely a highlight of Act II. 2017

The highlights for Marante include King’s “Natural Woman” and a mashup of Alicia Keys’ “Fallin’” and “Feeling Good,” as well as her beautiful operatic start to “Ode to Joy.” 2017

In the Heights-

Sandra Marante's Daniela comes with a trifecta of sass, jokes, and serious singing


Sandra Marante as Daniela expertly blends worldly wisdom with snappy wit. Like Stephanie Pope, Marante would stop the show with her amazing vocals on “Carnavale Del Barrio” if the song didn’t quickly move into a rousing company number.-

Then there’s Marante, who gets the eleven o’clock number slot with “Carnaval Del Barrio” – her voice soars-

Sandra Marante, cast in the pivotal role of the street-smart, take-charge, vivacious Daniela, is commanding, sexy, vibrant and wicked and comical. She is so in sync with the material, the music (vocally, she is absolutely dynamic), her character and her role in the story, never once do we think she is acting. She is the real deal. We not only get what she does and why she does it, but we understand her character's desire to close up shop (she owns a beauty salon) and move to the Bronx. We cheer her every step of the way, hoping she will succeed.-

Sandra Marante is feisty and fiery as the vivacious salon owner Daniela.-

 The infectious “Carnaval Del Barrio” sensuously sung by the striking Sandra

Ms. Marante, nevertheless, stands out with a lively, fervent performance.  She also possesses a powerful singing voice.

My two favorite female roles were played by Paige Buade, a Hartt School student, as Carla and the magnificent Sandra Marante as salon owner Daniela. These two lit up the corner hair salon and the rest of the stage whenever they appeared in a scene-

Daniela, who loves to share some good gossip in her song “Me No Diga,” ..Sandra Marante is terrific in that role, with a great voice and command of the stage.-
