Pandora: Out of the Bag Again!
Joanna Weinberg and her Band Come to Bondi Pavilion Saturday 26 August 9pm
Pandora’s Bag - A designer song (and bag) collection - at Bondi Beach Cabaret Festival
“Hilariously joyous!” – Hayes Theatre.
“A consummate cabaret performer and a fascinating songwriter” - Canberra Critics Circle
“Uplifting, musically funky and totally enjoyable… clever as Noel Coward.” – Sydney Arts Guide
“Joanna Weinberg has nailed her subject matter: highly recommended” - Lisa Thatcher, Theatre Live
Cabaret artist, musical writer and songwriter Joanna Weinberg brings her hit show Pandora's Bag to Bondi.
And joining her, as ever, is her funky all-girl band and quirky bag model ‘Chantelle’!
Weinberg is the force behind and the voice up front of a slew of award-winning cabaret, stage and screen hits:
Lifeforce, Every Single Saturday, the Piano Diaries, Baroness Bianka's Bloodsongs,
12 Shoes and Sinksongs - the inspiration for her feel-good international feature film Goddess.
Pandora’s Bag is a hilarious collection of 10 songs all inspired by that must-have item: the handbag!
From the sexy to the sassy, the sad to the hilarious, Weinberg opens the bag of female mystery
and pulls out everything from dirty laundry to leather fetishes and ‘bag porn’ (her secret vice).
She sings of middle-aged women on ships, timeless female myths and secret women’s business.
There is a new song in the show too – Doctor D - dedicated to a real flying female doctor from Sydney.
'Chantelle' will showcase an unusual bag collection and there is even a 'show and tell' section
where audience members are encouraged to tell personal or amusing stories about their bags.
The best story wins a designer bag from Cantabulous!
Drummer Nicola Ossher, trumpeter Ellen Kirkwood and cellist Kate Adams
are the outstanding musical and vocal accompanists.
This is the perfect way to celebrate a girl’s night out, (though boys are very welcome too,
cos they have their own ‘baggage’) and paper lunch bags are provided at the door for the bagless!
This talented and playful gang of women will ensure you have bags of fun.

“A Humorous collection of tunes from a not-so-shy woman, willing to take the audience
on an entertaining journey through thought-provoking subjects that most songwriters would not dare.
That just might be what you will adore about these songs as you sing-along.
Weinberg has created a strong collection of metaphors; all memorable songs and a top-notch cast of performers
