Me & Mr. Jones: My Intimate Relationship with David Bowie explores the lifelong "soul love" that Brooklyn-based performer Raquel Cion has for David Bowie's artistry and David Jones's humanity. Cion's personal stories and the deep cuts of Bowie's diverse catalog rocket us through the inner space of this "psycho-delicate girl": growing up as an outsider, navigating the celestial realms of love, mid-life crisis, loss, and creatively moving through cancer.

"Half witch ... half cabaret performer."
The New York Times, Jennifer Dunning
"The show is riveting and the writing at once poetic and ethereal . . . Cions finely-tuned band is fantastic throughout." BroadwayWorld.com, Victoria Ordin
"[Me & Mr. Jones] is a sacred rite of innate theatricality, artful sexuality and unapologetic emotion, Cion's show mourns a mythic cultural figure but celebrates the invention of who you really are."
