Jeffrey Johnson to Bring 'Special Agent Galactica' to the Duplex, 1/24
Fresh from performing Edie Beale at 54 Below, Jeffrey Johnson brings pink-haired super assassin's eclectic cabaret act to the Big Apple's The Duplex on Jan. 24!
Coming off his recent December success as Edie Beale at 54 Below, Washington, D.C. performer, Jeffrey Johnson brings another creation of his to a NYC landmark. That creation comes in the form of a pink haired super assassin who travels both space and time with the ultimate job of keeping the universe safe while in her down finds herself performing a cabaret show to maintain balance.
Making her first LIVE show appearance in the Big Apple, Special Agent Galactica will be accompanied by the critically acclaimed Jazz/Classical guitarist, Peter Fields.
Johnson, who insists he is only the "Pink Haired One's" personal assistant, says that Galactica's inspiration for this intimate show came for her desire to tell some of her stories and enjoy a little more intimacy with her audience. "About three years ago Galactica moved from the world of theatrical lip-sync shows into the genre of live-sung performance. Since then she has been VERY busy. She has been performing Rock N Roll shows with her rock band as well as holding down a critically acclaimed Jazz/Variety Happy Hour Show in Washington, DC. She felt it was time for her to be able to strip away some of the largeness that went hand-in-hand with these shows and be more one-on-one with her audience." Johnson says.
Special Agent Galactica will enchant her audience with an evening of songs from the golden age of Jazz, the bawdy blues of Burlesque, the classic standards of Hollywood, and a few gems from today while, in between, revealing (sometimes TOP SECRET) anecdotes about how she became a spy, her life and missions as a Special Agent, the challenges of an assassin's love life, and the famous people she's worked with during her time at "The Agency".
