AN *AMAZING* EVENING WITH JOHN O'NEIL & JINNY SAGORIN
Jinny teams up with New England's "cabaret sensation," John O'Neil, for a night of cabaret at the Amazing Things Arts Centre in Framingham. In Act 1, roar at John's antics as he takes you on a hilarious romp through old Boston, Broadway past and present, and John's early forays onto the stage. In Act 2, celebrate with Jinny the merits of keeping life simple as she reminds us that a good sense of humor and the state of your heart matter more than the state of the world. Jinny and John appear with their music directors, Doug Hammer and Jim Rice.
The blend of their unique styles promises a memorable evening that will delight, captivate, and entertain!
Join John and Jinny for a special one-night only performance.

Musical theatre and cabaret performer JINNY SAGORIN is "a unique soulstress with a rich repertoire who delivers her lush sounds with the purity of a songbird" (New England Entertainment Digest). Jinny launched her solo CD It's For You at Scullers Jazz Club, Boston, in 2005 to critical acclaim "She possesses a beautiful, lyrical voice and a disarming sincerity" (The Boston Globe) and "impressed with the range and texture of her exquisite voice" (Cabaret Hotline Online). In her native South Africa, Jinny performed with national theater companies in musicals such as Fiddler on the Roof, The Sound of Music, Hair, Evita, The Student Prince, Into the Woods, Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Naughty Noel, as well as in cabaret revues and with the Cape Town Symphony Choir. Boston performances include Overture Productions' The Bakers Wife, 1776, Pirates of Penzance, The 4th Boston Cabaret Festival at the Regattabar ("One of the Ten Best Cabaret Shows of 2005" - Cabaret Scenes), various cabarets at Blacksmith House, Jimmy Tingle's Off Broadway Theater, The Center for Arts in Natick, Club Café, Amazing Things, and private and corporate events. She is an alumnus of the 2003 Cabaret Conference at Yale University.
One of New England's finest cabaret actors (Niagara Falls Gazette), JOHN O'NEIL has been called "a cabaret sensation" by Boston Magazine. A veteran of Television, Stage, Screen and Radio, John can be heard on film in short subjects for the American Cancer Society and on the Compact Discs If You're Irish, Come Into The Parlor, So: Kaye The Songs of Danny Kaye, and Freedom Merriment and Joy, produced by AFKA records. John performs regularly across the country and has been recognized by the Boston Globe as one of New England's best-known cabaret artists. Two of John's shows, Back to Enniskillen and 'So Kaye: The Songs of Danny Kaye, have received IRNE award nominations from the Independent Reviewers of New England. Reviewers have called John's newest show Not That You Asked "a perfect mix of standup comedy, song and personal anecdote" and "hands down the best cabaret of the year." Not That You Asked was also nominated for a 2005 IRNE award for BEST SOLO PERFORMANCE. John is a favorite performer at Boston's First Night celebrations and next spring he returns to Florida with his St. Patrick's Day show: An Irishman's Journey Home.
