Jeffrey Johnson performs “Edie Beale LIVE at Reno Sweeney” Sunday through Tuesday and Nov. 24-26 at L’Enfant Café (2000 18th St., N.W.).

Johnson recreates Edie Beale’s one-week appearance at the Reno Sweeney Nightclub in New York City. The show is written by Gerald Duval who managed, wrote and produced Edie’s cabaret for Reno Sweeney. Duval incorporates the dialogue, songs and text from the historical performance in the modern interpretation. Johnson’s performance as “Little” Edie has received critical acclaim in D.C., New York City and San Francisco and was praised by Albert Maysles, director of the original “Grey Gardens.”

Tickets are $15. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
