About the event

Often referred to as the next Victor Borge, Sarah has transformed her award-winning role as

“concert pianist” into a stand-up, or rather, sitdown comedy. Pairing anecdotes with music, “Perk

up, pianist!” takes audiences deep inside the world of a classical musician as she shares her

earnest efforts to keep her spirits up in the midst of troublesome times. Described as “one of the

best hours I’ve ever spent at the Fringe” [The Coast (Halifax)], “Perk up, pianist!” tells the tale of

a touring classical musician remaining optimistic in the midst of challenging and ridiculous


Of the show’s debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival, Montreal Rampage wrote, “Hagen reminds

us the beauty of how an honest solo performance can make you so easily fall in love with its performer.” Directed by Rick Roberts. Created, written and performed by Sarah Hagen, with

original compositions
