Sandy Sahar Gooen

Composer Librettist Playwright Lyricist

Sandy is a 5'2 bundle of dynamite, born and raised most of his life in Randolph, New Jersey. He's a queer, trans, Jewish, and neurodivergent writer, and he tends to vary between writing, composing, and performing, but occasionally do other odd jobs. His first written show to make it to the professional stage in summer 2016 was It Takes A Village, about the intersections of faith, sexuality, and family, and in 2018, his second (somewhat autobiographical) play, Pass/Fail, premiered at The Brick.
