"Perk up, pianist!" goes onstage at the 2017 Edmonton Fringe Festival!

With an enthusiastic performance schedule that has taken her all the way to Carnegie Hall, Sarah Hagen transforms her award-winning role as “concert pianist” into a stand-up, or rather, sit-down piano-filled comedy. “Perk up, pianist!” is a uniquely charming music and storytelling experience that takes you deep inside the world of a touring classical musician.

“One of the best hours I’ve ever spent at the Fringe.” [The Coast, Halifax]

“Hagen reminds us the beauty of how an honest solo performance can make you so easily fall in love with its performer.” [Montreal Rampage]

“...she played the organ. The church organ. But this is the kind of wordplay and double entendre that she uses to great effect, seeming charming and innocent on the surface — I was occasionally reminded of Jan Smithers’ Bailey Quarters on WKRP in Cincinnati — before revealing the virtuoso vixen underneath.” [Local Xpress]
