Jeffrey Johnson Returns to NYC as SPECIAL AGENT GALACTICA on 7/12
Special Agent Galactica (Jeffrey Johnson), along with critically acclaimed jazz/classical guitarist, Peter Fields, weave together an intimate evening of songs, stories and a good old laugh or two. Featuring music of the Golden Age of Jazz, the Blues of Burlesque, Hollywood standards and a few rock and roll favorites from today, Galactica enchants with tales about her past missions, her love life, her time as a cadet, important people she's met along the way, and other anecdotal gems from her life as a hired galactic assassin for the privately owned underground organization referred to only as "The Agency".
The performance will be on Saturday, July 12th at 3:30pm at The Duplex (61 Christopher Street, Manhattan, NY 10014). Tickets are $10 plus two drinks.
The lovely and talented Sarah Kimball will be joining Galactica and Peter on stage to sing a little something!
Special Agent Galactica is a mix of sultry songstress, retro-rock chick, jazzy vocalist rolled up in a sexy secret agent spy. She electrifies the stage with her swelling interpretations of the music that we love while weaving momentary glimpses into the larger stories that make up her top-secret galaxy spanning career. Living a life where missions often take her into the realm of Spacetime, she finds an evening of intimate cabaret during her down time helps keep her in check.
In addition to being an immediate sellout at the amphitheater in ancient Pompeii, in this day and age the Pink Haired One not only holds court in her home town of Washington DC, but can be seen taking a trek up to the prestigious The Duplex in NYC or popping in at the world famous Feinstein's in San Francisco as well as many other haunts up and down the north east coast.
From 2003-2011 Galactica was known around DC for her unique theatrical lip-sync shows including her runaway hit of the Capitol Fringe Festival in DC in 2010. In 2013 she began her collaboration with the critically acclaimed jazz/classical guitarist, Peter Fields and together they have developed a continually changing theatrical cabaret that brings a more intimate, one on one storytelling/musical experience.
Never one to stop creating...always inspired by the stories of her time and space traveling special agent lifestyle...forever searching for her next favorite song, Special Agent Galactica has, quite literally, the universe waiting for what she has next to offer!
