Godfrey Johnson and Nicholas McDiarmid, the shameless duo who brazenly made lemonade out of Trump & charmed audiences into the Alexander Bar with their show This is not America in January, are back by popular demand with their ever-adapting comedy, songs and wit. This is Not America – Hallelujah sees them back at the Alexander Bar March 16, 17 and 18 to assuage Cape Town’s ever-growing thirst.
Johnson, South Africa’s leading Cabaret Performer, just got back from stormy Johannesburg after a stunningly received 2 week run of the run of his critically acclaimed ‘Vaslav, dazzling audiences at the Auto & General Theatre on Square with his unique brand of performance. As reported in the Huffington Post recently, “Audiences are moved by the story of Vaslav, but also by the exquisite honesty of Godfrey’s performance.”
He is joined by pianist and writer, Nicholas McDiarmid in This is Not America – Hallelujah to shower Cape Town with more songs, satire and more of their dazzling piano duets. The duo have selected songs by Tori Amos, Eurythmics, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and their own compositions, and added more of their singular piano acrobatics with exciting music for four hands.
