Jeffrey Johnson, best known as Special Agent Galactica, returns to Black Fox Lounge (1723 Connecticut Ave., N.W.) with his show, “Little Edie Beale Live at Reno Sweeney” for two performances Dec. 2-3.

The show is a recreation of “Grey Gardens’” Edie Beale’s cabaret act from 1978 and features her rambling, but unintentionally hilarious, musings and memories of her life with her mother and her cousin, Jackie Kennedy Onassis.

Tickets are $10 for both performances which will begin at 8 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
