Godfrey Johnson back in ‘The Blue Devil’

Godfrey Johnson back in ‘The Blue Devil’

Cabaret artist extraordinaire Godfrey Johnson will be performing his new show ‘The Blue Devil’ at the Galloway Theatre, Cape Town Waterfront, from February 6 to 9.

Johnson’s new musical cabaret will include new original songs by Johnson, ‘Dido’s Lament’ by Purcell, Weill, Brel and many more. ‘The Blue Devil’ promises to take audiences on an unexpected poetic and satyrical musical journey and some of Johnson’s favorite characters will also make their way onto the stage, such as Cape Town’s very concerned citizen, Nugent Stein.

Johnson will also give the audience a chance to choose some of their favourite songs from his extensive repertoire, ranging from Sondheim to Tori Amos.

Johnson has performed in over 200 productions and has won numerous awards over the years. He was recently nominated for Fleur du Cap awards in three categories for his work in his one-man show ‘Vaslav’ (Best Actor in a Musical, Best Performance in a Solo Show and Best Musical Score). Recent hit shows include ‘The Shadow of Brel’, ‘Flirting with Coward’ and ‘Unzipped’.

In 2015 he composed the music for Pieter-Dirk Uys’ musical, ‘Die Van Aardes Van Grootoor’.
